...an absorbing, well-researched, and illuminating life of an American leader who now receives the full attention he deserves. - Michael Beschloss, Editor Of American Heritage Illustrated History Of The Presidents; "Char Miller's lively, insightful account of the life and world of American forester Gifford Pinchot fills a vitally important gap in environmental and conservation history.
