9780062441553: Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Land of America

Douglas Brinkley’s The Wilderness Warrior celebrated Theo­dore Roosevelt’s spirit of outdoor exploration and bold vision to protect 234 million acres of wild America. Now, in Rightful Heritage, Brinkley turns his attention to another indefatigable environmental leader—Theodore’s distant cousin

Franklin Delano Roosevelt—chronicling his essential yet undersung legacy as the founder of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the premier protector of America’s public lands. FDR built state park systems and scenic roadways from scratch. Through his leadership, pristine landscapes such as the Great Smokies, the Everglades, Joshua Tree, the Olympics, Big Bend, and the Channel Islands were forever saved.

Rightful Heritage is essential reading for everyone interested in our treasured landscapes and historic sites as American birthrights.
