In 1887, a year after founding the Audubon Society, explorer and conservationist George Bird Grinnell launched Audubon Magazine. The magazine constituted one of the first efforts to preserve bird species decimated by the women’s hat trade, hunting, and loss of habitat. Within two years, however, for practical reasons, Grinnell dissolved both the magazine and the society. Remarkably, Grinnell’s mission was soon revived by women and men who believed in it, and the work continues today. In this, the only comprehensive history of the first Audubon Society (1886–1889), Carolyn Merchant presents the exceptional story of George Bird Grinnell and his writings and legacy. The book features Grinnell’s biographies of ornithologists John James Audubon and Alexander Wilson and his editorials and descriptions of Audubon’s bird paintings. This primary documentation combined with Carolyn Merchant’s insightful analysis casts new light on Grinnell, the origins of the first Audubon Society, and the conservation of avifauna.

Hugh Glass is among the company’s finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two company men are dispatched to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies. When the men abandon him instead, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out, crawling at first, across hundreds of miles of uncharted American frontier.

Er ist mit der Prärie und Kultur der Indianer verbunden wie kaum ein anderes Tier: der Bison. Doch im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert ist von den einst 30 Millionen Exemplaren nur noch ein Dutzend übrig. Denn das Land im Westen gilt als Wunderkammer, reich an Bodenschätzen und kostbaren Tieren, die von weißen Abenteurern und Jägern auf der Suche nach ihrem Stück vom Glück rücksichtslos ausgebeutet wird. Als schließlich der Naturwissenschaftler und Journalist George Bird Grinnell auf einer Zugreise mit einer Büffelherde kollidiert, steht für ihn fest, dass er die Ausrottung der stolzen Riesen verhindern muss ... Ein leidenschaftlicher Kampf beginnt, der auch erstmals ins öffentliche Bewusstsein rückt, wie schutzbedürftig Amerikas einzigartige Landschaft ist. Eine packende Geschichte, die aktueller ist denn je und mitten hineinführt in den Wilden Westen.
