Gifford Pinchot : American Forester (First Books - American Conservationists Series)

Breaking New GroundBreaking New Ground by Gifford Pinchot, Char Miller (Introduction)

"Incredible story of a difficult struggle to gather support for the creation of our national forests. I learned that people don't change. It is ironic that the book covers how over 100 years ago, many miners, land developers were so violently opposed to any land being protected-I see the same thing happening today with sprawl.

A MUST READ. It made me really feel fortunate that we have our national forests to enjoy because we almost didn't. I had trouble putting this book down. It is very long, but oh so good if you have any interest in conservation." -- Anonymous Review

Gifford Pinchot Biography
From the US Forest Service.  


Gifford Pinchot was one of America's leading advocates of environmental conservation at the turn of the twentieth century. Born into wealth and endowed with imagination and a love of nature, he shared his money, possessions and intellect to further the causes of the common good.


Gifford Pinchot Biography
From the PA Environmental Heritage Site.


Gifford Pinchot, America's first professionally trained forester, rose to national prominence as a conservationist and political progressive under the patronage of President Theodore Roosevelt. Equally noteworthy was his election twice as Republican governor of Pennsylvania. As a politician he fought for wiser use of natural resources and for fuller justice for the average citizen. His struggle for reform, particularly with leaders in his own party, made him a center of continual controversy.


Pinchot Institute for Conservation
The Pinchot Institute For Conservation is an independent, non-profit organization committed to leadership in conservation thought, policy and action with a mission to advance the conservation of natural resources throughout the world. Dedicated at Grey Towers in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy, the Institute facilitates communication and closer cooperation among resource managers, scientists, policymakers and the American public. With executive offices in Washington, D.C., it’s home is the Pinchot estate where an inspirational environment allows for the exploration of new ideas in conservation and continues Gifford Pinchot's legacy of conservation through sustainable forest management. This aligns to the wishes of Pinchot's son, who donated the mansion and grounds to the Forest Service to further his father’s work.
