One of America’s most significant architects of conservation and the environment, Stewart Udall, comes to life in this environmental biography. Udall served as the U.S. Secretary of the Interior under John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson from 1961-1969. During these eight years, he established dozens of new national park units and national wildlife refuges, wrote the Endangered Species Preservation Act, lobbied for unpolluted water, and offered ways to beautify urban spaces and bring the impoverished out of poverty. Later in life, he continued as an advocate for conservation and the environment, specifically by proposing solutions to the challenges associated with global warming and the widespread use of oil. Hardcover, 292 pages.
