Description

Nature, pollution, and the environment are constantly in the news and, while these issues have become increasingly urgent, they have concerned Americans for almost 200 years.This book profiles 10 Americans who have worked over the past two centuries to understand, document, and protect the natural wilderness of the United States. These men and women come from all walks of life and include the artists, authors, scientists, and diplomats who founded such institutions as the Sierra Club and Friends of the Everglades. These leaders will inspire nature lovers to do their part in the ongoing struggle to preserve this country, and the world for all its living inhabitants.
Each volume in the American Profiles series provides middle and high school students with concise information on eight to thirteen important and influential figures in a particular field of endeavor.

Profiles are organized around a movement, event, or profession that has had a significant, lasting impact on American history and contemporary life. Essential biographical information is included for each figure, but the heart of each profile describes the critical achievements and contributions of the individual under consideration and assesses the subject's significance, not only in the context of the person's own lifetime, but in the broader sweep of American history.

Placing each figure's achievements and contributions in a historical context makes each profile the ideal source for preparing reports. Students can use this framework as a basis for comparisons and contrasts, which will give them a better understanding of how individuals shape, and are shaped by, the times in which they live.

Profiles: John James Audubon; John Muir; Aldo Leopold; Rachel Carson; Olans and Margaret Murie; Margery Stoneman Douglas; George Perkins Marsh; David Brower; and Gaylord Nelson.
