"An exceptional biography of a remarkable subject.. Wilderness Forever deserves high praise..[and] will undoubtedly remain the definitive work on Zahniser. Harvey's meticulous research and engaging writing make this volume not only important, but a delight to read. With Wilderness Forever..Harvey firmly establishes himself as the leading historian of wilderness in the post-World War II era."―New Mexico Historical Review
"We have Mark Harvey to thank for a meticulously researched biography, riveting in its detail of how political alliances dissolved or reformed, of how bills became laws, and of how early wilderness defenders sought to reconcile wilderness management and undisturbed conditions."―Western Historical Quarterly
"A solid addition to the body of literature on conservationists and the development of wilderness areas. Highly recommended for the lay reader as well as the scholar."―Electronic Green Journal
"Do environmental historians really need yet another biography of a heroic environmentalist? . . . In the case of Mark Harvey's graceful study of Howard Zahniser, the answer to that question would seem to be, surprisingly, yes, the pantheon of environmental heroes needs to make room for one more addition. Those seeking to understand the tectonic shifts in environmental politics in the mid-twentieth century and the quiet man who played an unexpectedly large role in many of them will find Wilderness Forever to be a welcome― and long overdue― work of environmental biography."―The Journal of American History
"Mark Harvey's Wilderness Forever is a superb biography of the nation's preeminent postwar wilderness lobbyist. Harvey has given readers a detailed portrait of an activist who most environmental historians know was important but do not know well. Like the man it chronicles, Wilderness Forever is quiet and humble but also forceful and convincing."―Oregon Historical Quarterly
"A much-anticipated biography of this most critical of players in the modern environmental movement. Harvey has nicely brought Zahniser's many public accomplishments to light and in doing so has enriched our understanding of the man and the political context in which he so skillfully operated."―Char Miller, author of Gifford Pinchot and the Making of Modern Environmentalism

In addition to extensive coverage of Zahniser's legislative and activist efforts, Mark Harvey has fleshed out this biography with some real insight into Zahniser's success and influence. His most important belief was in the inclusion of all parties who had different reasons to respect the wilderness, from the spiritual to the recreational to the economic. This made Zahniser a consummate builder of coalitions and consensus, leading to great bipartisan political success.Read more ›
