Bob Marshall embodied the spirit of wilderness. He fought for the preservation of millions of acres of American forestland; he explored and wrote about the Alaskan frontier, and he organized the Wilderness Society. His passion for wilderness was nurtured in the Adirondack Mountains, where he spent his boyhood summers. He and his brother, George, and their guide, Herb Clark, were the first to climb all the Adirondack peaks over four thousand feet. This book gathers nearly forty of Marshalls writings about the Adirondacks. They include numerous accounts of his pioneering hikes in the High Peaks and of his explorations in the vast wild region south of Cranberry Lake, spirited defenses of the forever-wild Forest Preserve, a charming sketch of Herb Clark, a tribute to the nineteenth-century surveyor Mills Blake, and excerpts from an unpublished novel set partly in the Adirondacks.These articles are an important part of Adirondack history. They not only illuminate Marshalls life and thought, but they also reveal his deeply personal connection to the Adirondacks. Readers who know Marshall solely by his national reputation will discover what inspired him to become one of the countrys strongest voices for wilderness preservation. Adirondack aficionados will delight in reading about Marshalls experience of places they know and love. The anthology also contains three articles by George Marshall, including a heartfelt portrait of his brother, Adirondacks to Alaska, as well as pieces by historian Philip G. Terrie, legendary conservationist Paul Schaefer and Adirondack Explorer Editor Phil Brown and a humorous ode to peak-bagging by Bill McKibben.It is richly illustrated by more than sixty photographs, many taken by Marshall himself, and a dozen maps.

This book traces the epic clash of values between traditional scenery-and-tourism management and emerging ecological concepts in the national parks, America’s most treasured landscapes. It spans the period from the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 to near the present, analyzing the management of fires, predators, elk, bear, and other natural phenomena in parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Great Smoky Mountains. Based largely on original documents never before researched, this is the most thorough history of the national parks ever written. Focusing on the decades after the National Park Service was established in 1916, the author reveals the dynamics of policy formulation and change, as landscape architects, foresters, wildlife biologists, and other Park Service professionals contended for dominance and shaped the attitudes and culture of the Service. The book provides a fresh look at the national parks and an analysis of why the Service has not responded in full faith to the environmental concerns of recent times. Richard West Sellars, a historian with the National Park Service, has become uniquely familiar with the history, culture, and dynamics of the Service--including its biases, internal alliances and rivalries, self-image, folklore, and rhetoric. The book will prove indispensable for environmental and governmental specialists and for general readers seeking an in-depth analysis of one of America’s most admired federal bureaus.
