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.
