Description: New in paperbackWilderness is not only a place. It is also one of the most powerful and challenging ideas in American environmental thought, representing everything from sublime beauty to the overextension of government authority. The Promise of Wilderness examines the profound and sometimes surprising ways that the idea of wilderness has shaped modern American environmental politics."The Promise of Wilderness will be read with pleasure by all who enjoy --and realize they must act politically to protect--the untrammeled great outdoors." --Rupert Cutler, former Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, Roanoke Times"The most deeply researched, analytically rigorous, and elegantly written study of American wilderness politics since the 1960s." --from the Foreword by William Cronon"A wonderfully compelling picture of the people, history, and politics of America's wilderness. A great read." --Melyssa Watson, cofounder, The Wilderness Society's Wilderness Support Center
