About This Book
A Glimpse Into History: What Prominent People Have Said About Nature in Oregon and the Need to Conserve It features the words of over ninety figures who turned Oregon into the premier "green" state. They were explorers, pioneers, settlers, ministers, climbers, scientists, poets, politicians, writers, ranchers, activists, lawyers, and businessmen.
They shaped the culture that saw value in nature and demanded policies to protect it. Through their inspiring words, their presence is still felt. Oregon was blessed in being shaped by such talented people.
