KIRKUS REVIEW

The author traces basic developments in this country which led to the conservation movement. In the colonial period nature was a burden to be overcome by the swing of an ax. Now depleted resources necessitate great conservation programs. The roles art, science, literature, politics and leisure played in the changed American outlook are traced and synthesized in well documented fashion. The uses of the American poets as impetus are included in the pattern of the whole movement.
