About this book

Offers a fresh interpretation of the life and work of the famed conservationist and Progressive politician. In addition to considering Pinchot's role in the environmental movement, historian Char Miller sets forth an engaging description and analysis of the man - his character, passions, and personality - and the larger world through which he moved.

...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. Anyone captivated by the issues and controversies surrounding the preservation and development of the nation's natural heritage should read this engaging, carefully researched biography." - Carolyn Merchant, University Of California, Berkeley, Author Of The Death Of Nature"
