A true story of Alabama's leadership role in the national movement for protecting America's remaining wilderness. The tireless efforts of a handful of Alabama environmentalists, together with the caring commitment of such political leaders as Ronnie Flippo, spearheaded a successful national campaign for wilderness protection that is today celebrated in the annals of American history. - Doug Phillips, author of Discovering Alabama Wetlands; "John Randolph brings an expert's eye to the scene.... His book makes an original and significant contribution to the fields of environmental studies, Alabama and southern history, and sociology in that it focuses on the political and social strategies of grassroots organizing." - Suzanne Marshall, author of "Lord, We're Just Trying to Save Your Water": Environmental Activism and Dissent in the Appalachlan South"
