Pressestimmen

"This graceful and readable book is the first-hand account of one who contributed in important ways to the ecological revolution that followed World War II, an encourager whose respect for nature and humanity shines through every page.... Inspired by others, he in turn gave inspiration to a generation that may have helped us to turn back towards collective sanity in our relationship with the Earth."-Peter H. Raven, President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; "How the environmental movement came to be and the role he played in its emergence is the core of Ray Dasmann's story. Environmentalism did not just happen: people forged it from their passionate grief at the threat to our living world. Understanding that passion and that grief is the gift this volume has to offer."-Carl Pope, President of the Sierra Club
