Synopsis:

Vigorous, colorful, bold and highly personal, Breaking New Ground is the autobiography of Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the Forest Service. He tells a fascinating tale of his efforts, under President Theodore Roosevelt, to wrest the forests from economic special interests and to bring them under management for multiple- and long-range use. His philosophy of "the greatest good for the greatest number over the longest time" has become the foundation upon which this country's conservation policy is based.

About the Author: V. Alaric Sample was director of American Forests' Forest Policy Center.


Char Miller is Director of the Environmental Analysis Program and W.M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis at Pomona College in Claremont, California.  Miller is the author of many articles on environmental history, politics, and other issues for a wide range of publications, both professional and popular.

For his book Gifford Pinchot and the Making of Modern Environmentalism, Miller won the Independent Publisher Book Award; Foreword Magazine Book of the Year, Gold Award 2001; National Outdoor Book Award; Connecticut Book Award; and Booklist Magazine (April 2001), Top Ten Biographies of Social Activists
