About this book

&i;Breaking New Ground&o; is the best-selling 1947 autobiography of Gifford Pinchot, first chief of the forest service in Theodore Roosevelt's administration. A powerful and controversial figure, he saw the forests as a precious resource to be managed for maximum yield with minimum long-term damage.

Gifford Pinchot is the man to whom the nation owes most for what has been accomplished as regards the preservation of the natural resources of our country. --Theodore Roosevelt
