Speaking for Nature
Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1980. Brooks was both Rachel's Carson's editor and biographer and a John Burroughs Medal winner (for Roadless Area). This book provides an overview of those for whom "the chief weapon [in the] fight to protect the American environment over the past century has been the pen," including Thoreau, John Burroughs, John Muir, William Beebe, Mary Austin, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and many others. Inscribed by Brooks: "For Joe -- Long-time friend and colleague, with much gratitude for your efforts on behalf of this & my other books./ Paul/ October, 1980." Light foxing to endpages and page edges; near fine in a near fine, faintly spine-sunned dust jacket. [#035672] $300
