A documentary history of conservation in America by Robert McHenry( Book )

9 editions published in 1972 in 3 languages and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected and edited passages drawn from numerous authors and sources on the subject of man and his world are compiled in this anthology.

One regards nature as good and beautiful; the other as providing all the necessities of man in unending abundance.
