Who Saved the Redwoods? The Unsung Heroines of the 1920s Who Fought for Our Redwood Forests

Who Saved the Redwoods? The Unsung Heroines of the 1920s Who Fought for Our Redwood Forests

from 20.65

By Laura and James Wasserman. This book tells the forgotten, dramatic story of early 20th-century Californians and other Americans who saved the first and the best of California’s northern redwood forests from the logging industry. Their dedication led the way for the modern environmental movement. It offers a definitive account of a pivotal moment in environmentalism and a new explanation of how forceful, determined people a century ago preserved the great California redwood forests that are now enjoyed by millions of visitors from every corner of earth.
