KIRKUS REVIEW

A friend of the forests, Gifford Pinchot was a child of privilege. Wandering through the arbored miles of the parental estate in Pennsylvania, he developed the protective attitude which marked the later years of his life. Friend of Teddy Roosevelt, champion of conservation and reforestation, he became chief of the Bureau of Forestry, established a school of forestry at Yale University and became Governor of Pennsylvania. An uncluttered style tells the story of a far- sighted fighter and fills a gap in background reading on conservation.
