Ean air and water and a haven for recreationSince its inception however America’s public land system has been embroiled in controversy caught in the push and pull between the desire to develop the valuable resources the land holds or conserve them Alarmed by rising tensions over the use of these lands hunter angler and outdoor enthusiast Mark Ken. Wow This is a wonderful book extolling the beauty of our public lands and advocating passionately for all of us to protect our incredible heritage so carefully preserved over than a century It is filled with detail about the evolution of the Public Lands preservation movement and the current horrific assault by some rapacious corporations and politicians to privatize exploit and to sell to developers our incredible natural legacy The author is an avid outdoorsman a hunter of meat to feed his family and also a hiker and backwoods camper who loves the serenity and beauty of wild habitat Admittedly I am uncomfortable with the occasional brief description of a hunt I am a vegetarian leaning toward vegan yet I unuestionably have an admiration for this man who writes so beautifully about his forays into the wilderness and advocates so elouently for everyone to join together to protect our public lands The author presents a clear case for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to join together to preserve our common heritage of public lands for future generations Highly recommended

Years ago I was fortunate to be on an overseas trip visiting friends and taking in the sights of England and Scotland I marveled at the age of buildings sometimes twice as old as the settlement site in Jamestown sadly thinking that we didn t have anything like that in AmericaHow wrong I wasIt is the natural wonders of the world that are there for us to enjoy and Mark Kenyon s book offers a mixture of details that is sure interest everyone If history is your passion Mr Kenyon takes us on a journey through the pitched battles between the businessmen and the conservationists each pursuing a diametrically opposed path The parks and monuments we visit today and perhaps take for granted might not have been here if not for the efforts of people like Theodore Roosevelt George Bird Grinnell John Muir and Presidents Harrison Cleveland and McKinley When Roosevelt assumed the Presidency he fought hard for what he believed in extending by millions of acres the federal land earmarked for enjoyment by the American people These initial steps were later taken farther by people like Aldo Leopold Bob Marshall and President Franklin Delano RooseveltIf your interests lie in communing with nature or perhaps you prefer the fishing or hunting aspects you will not feel left out Mr Kenyon describes his fishing almost as if it were holy and I am sure to him it is and even as one who does not fish I can understand the essence of what he is feeling Hunting trips are also described although I enjoyed his detailed search to find antlers The author shared that these searches also tell him much of where the deer might be once hunting season commences certainly a huge advantage to those who walk the forests and mountains hunting with a bowI found the mixture of history and life interesting and entertaining Wherever Mr Kenyon was hiking or fishing or whatever he would interject slices of history before returning to what ever he and his wife or friends were doing This kept the book moving forward and I liked the combination of personal life story mixed with historical background This is a great read that just might cause you to begin a search for a good pair of hiking boots Five stars
