Battle for the wilderness by Michael Frome( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Battle for the Wilderness is one of the important works of the American conservation movement. Centered on the struggle to pass the 1964 Wilderness Act, it offers a well-written, workable definition of wilderness and presents conservation as a vital thread in American history. In a completely new preface, Michael Frome ruminates on the relative treatment of the wilderness system under successive administrations, and on recent approaches to the preservation of wild lands. The full text of the Wilderness Act - the document remains at the center of continuing disputes over the definition, designation, and disposition of wilderness - is reproduced in one appendix, while another appendix lists all the wilderness areas now designated in the fifty states."--Jacket

Regreening the national parks by Michael Frome( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frome has drawn on both official documents and personal interviews to examine the policies--and personalities--behind the scenes at the National Park Service. He cites instances of personnel being forbidden to criticize public policy in which they found a conflict with conservation principles, and contends that, as the Park Service has become more bureaucratic, those for whom the environment deeply matters scarcely rise within its ranks. In considering the environmental abuse rampant today, Frome sees national parks as models of respect for nature and concludes his book with a ten-point program toward realizing that ideal."--Pub. website
Green ink : an introduction to environmental journalism by Michael Frome( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Equal parts anecdote, advice, personal testimony, and nuts and bolts instruction, Green Ink will inspire all who care about the environment. Having encountered censorship and dismissal for his unstinting defense of the environment, Michael Frome writes with passion and conviction about advocacy journalism. He reports candidly on the rewards and challenges to be expected in its pursuit, noting the important contributions of such varied voices as Rachel Carson and Bernard DeVoto, John Muir and Edward Abbey, William Cullen Bryant and Walt Whitman, Studs Terkel and Aldo Leopold, as well as many contemporary investigative environmental writers. Green Ink serves as a valuable primer for those who aspire to write about the environmental issues and crises facing us today."--Jacket
