Description:
Wednesday, July 24th at 6pm – Author Talk with John Taliaferro for Grinell: America’s Environmental Pioneer, and His Restless Drive to Save the West
Hailed by the New York Times as “the father of American conservation,” George Bird Grinnell (1849–1938), the Brooklyn-born son of a banker, looked beyond a burgeoning cityscape and saw a brighter future for the whole country. In Grinnell, John Taliaferro traces the naturalist’s expansive trajectory from his time at Yale through his dozens of expeditions out west, riding alongside General Custer in the Black Hills before Little Bighorn, to the adventures that continued even after he became editor-in-chief of Forest & Stream. The result is an enthralling portrait of a man whose influence still guides the imperiled future of our national treasures.
