There is much more to Marshall than the Montana wilderness bearing his name. Glover brings to life an immensely energetic fighter for wilderness and humanitarian causes in the 1930s. An indefatigible hiker, he often walked over 30 miles a day, even as a Forest Service chief. He was a romantic, an optimist, a scientist, a writer, a talker, a keeper of lists, a humorist"a kind of da Vinci in high-topped sneakers." A founder of the Wilderness Society, he stirred professional foresters and the public with his enthusiastic, articulate, pragmatic speeches and writings. He laid the groundwork for the landmark 1964 Wilderness Act and, like John Muir, greatly influenced modern thinking about outdoor values. Highly recommended for history, conservation, and recreation collections at all levels. Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
