He recounts his failures and victories with candor and offers philosophical reflections with hope. He began his career as a copyboy for the Washington Post, rose to write front-page stories, but left to pursue his passion for writing by concentrating on natural resources and the environment. Over the years, he was a featured columnist in Field & Stream, Los Angeles Times, and Defenders of Wildlife. He has written eighteen books, including definitive works about national forests (Whose Woods These Are), the Great Smoky Mountains (Strangers in High Places), wilderness preservation (Battle for the Wilderness), and environmental journalism (Green Ink).
