The Adirondack roots of an American environmentalist

Listen to this story
A new book published this fall explores the Adirondack roots of one of America's most important environmentalists. Bob Marshall, who died in 1939, founded the Wilderness Society and helped to popularize the idea that remote wilderness areas should be protected. Marshall spent summers as a boy on Lower Saranac Lake. He learned his love for the outdoors hiking and climbing here in the North Country. Now PHil Brown, editor of the Adirondack Explorer magazine, has collected Marshall's writing about the Adirondacks into a single volume. Brown told Brian Mann that the book is part of an effort to establish more wilderness in the Adirondack Park.
