I feel he captures the spirit of Muir in a way no other author I have read does, and in doing so gets to the very heart of conservationism. Anyone who is interested in Muir, conservationism, or simply wonders what all the "green", "sustainable", and environmental stuff is all about will no doubt gain immensely from reading this book. In addition to being a thoroughly researched and comprehensive historical work, Fox's writing style is approachable and thought-inspiring. Great Read!
Like the other reviewer I find Fox's writing not only informative, but enjoyable. He writes as if he were writing a novel. He talks about people who are the movement. I'm finding out things about Muir that I'd never known.
Great book. Should have a much wider readership for its topic, conservation, it's focus, Muir, and it enjoyment.
