About this book

Traces the roots of California's Save-the-Redwoods League and the Sierra Club.
`Anyone involved in current environmental debate and action will find The Fight to Save the Redwoods an important and useful history of the conservation movement.' Environment

Anyone involved in current environmental debate and action will find The Fight to Save the Redwoods an important and useful history of the conservation movement. - Environment; "This is not a simple or ordinary history of a conservation crusade. Schrepfer very ably traces the changes in scientific wisdom from nineteenth-century romanticism and teleological evolutionism to more current ecological dynamism - and the influence of those intellectual developments on political history.... The subject is important - much broader than the title suggests - and so is the book." - American Historical Review
