About this title


A rare portrait of a politician who refused to stand for corruption shows how one New Dealer turned the scandal-ridden Department of the Interior into a powerful tool for preserving public lands. Reprint. PW. LJ. NYT.

From Library Journal:

Ickes, long the best recorder of his own story through autobiography and a massive diary, has found his biographer. Watkins, vice-president of the Wilderness Society and editor of Wilderness magazine, not only gives environmentalists a hero whom they may scarcely know, but his splendidly written life of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Interior Secretary is also a major work of New Deal scholarship. Conservation was but one area of achievement for Ickes, whose furious political career spanned Progressive-era Chicago and Harry Truman's Washington; all the while with a private life so atilt as to delight any biographer--and any reader. The one other complete biography, Graham White's Harold Ickes of the New Deal ( LJ 7/85), approaches Ickes from a more psychological angle and is far less satisfying than Watkins's work. Highly recommended to most public and academic libraries.
