Entries from the personal diaries of Gifford Pinchot, an influential early advocate for environmental conservation, are selected as they refer to Pinchot's activities establishing national forests. Steen (a conservation historian affiliated with the Pinchot Institute for Conservation) has arranged the entries chronologically into chapters that begin with two-to-three page summaries of the events of that period. Some b&w photos are included.
