Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Edgar Wayburn may be the least-known yet most successful defender of America's natural heritage. A tenacious and tireless leader of the Sierra Club since the 1940s, he had a central role in the establishment of Redwoods National Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and in the passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. For his visionary achievements, he was honored with the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1995 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1999.
Not a conventional autobiography, "Your Land and Mine "focuses on Wayburn's key conservation campaigns, some of the most crucial of the twentieth century, and the fascinating cast of characters that populated them. His accounts of hard-fought battles are full of telling details and lively portraits of legislators such as Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson and Representative Phil Burton; land officials such as Interior Secretaries Stewart Udall and Rogers Morton; and countless other personalities in the ongoing drama of preserving our nation's environmental heritage. Wayburn also offers glimpses of a personal life intimately woven with his conservation career--both shared with his wife, fellow activist, co-adventurer, and writer Peggy Wayburn, until her death in 2002.
Illustrated with rare photographs from Wayburn's personal collection, "Your Land and Mine "is required reading for anyone interested in the growth of America's conservation movement. It is also an engaging portrait of an important and inspiring American life.
