Roosevelt, Burroughs and the Trip That Saved Nature



 An 8-chapter non-fiction study of the friendship between President Theodore Roosevelt and nature writer John Burroughs and their camping trip to Yellowstone Park during Roosevelt's presidency, a trip that was pivotal in the birth of the conservation movement and the evolution of thinking about preservation and management of natural resources.

Besides creating national parks and preserving public lands as president, Governor Roosevelt was also influential in preserving and protecting the Adirondacks, while Burroughs was a key figure in setting better standards for nature-writing and is remembered alongside Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, as well as John Muir and Walt Whitman.  

Together, these energetic lovers of the natural world formed a key partnership in developing the environmental movement.
