Description:

John Muir and His Legacyis at once a biography of this remarkable man—the first work to make unrestricted use of all of Muir’s manuscripts and personal papers—and a history of the century-old fight to save the natural environment. Stephen Fox traces the conservation movement's diverse, colorful, and tumultuous history, from the successful campaign to establish Yosemite National Park in 1890 to the movement's present day concerns of nuclear waste and acid rain.    Conservation has run a cyclical course, Fox contends, from its origins in the 1890s when it was the province of amateurs, to its takeover by professionals with quasi-scientific notions, and back, in the 1960s to its original impetus. Since then man’s view of himself as “the last endangered species” has sparked an explosion of public interest in environmentalism.    First published in 1981 by Little, Brown, this book was warmly received as both a biography of Muir and a history of the American conservation movement. It is now available in this new Wisconsin paperback edition.

After Navy service and graduate school, Stephen Fox taught American history at Humboldt State University until his retirement. His oral history, 'The Unknown Internment' (Twayne, 1990, reprinted as 'UnCivil Liberties' by Universal Publishers, 2000-2014), rekindled interest in the wartime relocation and internment of European Americans. For that contribution, he received an American Book Award in 1992. His most recent nonfiction book, 'Homeland Insecurity,' was published by iUniverse in 2009.'Illusions' is Steve's first fictional work. His favorite pastime, other than writing, is bicycle touring (www.crazyguyonabike.com/docs/maceasy).
