David Brower (1912–2000) was a central figure in the modern environmental movement. His leadership, vision, and elegant conception of the wilderness forever changed how we approach nature. Brower transformed the Sierra Club into a national force.  His achievements remain some of the most important triumphs of the conservation movement.

This uncompromising biography is a rich and robust profile of a leader who took up the work of John Muir and with Rachel Carson made environmentalism the cause of our time.

Robert Wyss teaches environmental journalism to undergraduate students and communication skills to graduate science students.  Before teaching, Wyss was a reporter and editor for 28 years for the Providence Journal covering energy, environment and business.  He has also written for such publications as The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Audubon, Yankee, and the Huffington Post.
