Most widely held works by Susan R Schrepfer
The fight to save the redwoods a history of environmental reform, 1917-1978 by Susan R Schrepfer( )
12 editions published between 1983 and 2003 in English and held by 1,597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Schrepfer, in a masterfully crafted piece of scholarship, focuses her attention on a six-decade struggle to preserve remnants of the coastal redwood forests. ... She also offers trenchant analyses of the population of various reform and interest groups, and along the way offers critical studies of historians' judgments on such things as Progressivism, the New Deal, and the histories of science and conservation."--David A. Clary, American Historical Review "Anyone involved in current environmental debate and action will find The Fight to Save the Redwoods an important and useful history of the conservation movement."--Environment "This is not a simple or ordinary history of a conservation crusade. Schrepfer very ably traces the changes in scientific wisdom from nineteenth-century romanticism and teleological evolutionism to more current ecological dynamism--and the influence of those intellectual developments on political history. ... The subject is important--much broader than the title suggests--and so is the book."--American Historical Review "It will be informative even to those who were deeply involved in the redwood wars--on either side."--California History
Nature's altars : mountains, gender, and American environmentalism by Susan R Schrepfer( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Delving into memoirs and histories, letters and diaries, early photos and old maps, Schrepfer especially compares male and female mountaineering narratives to show the ways in which gender affected what men and women found to value in rocky heights, and how their different perceptions together defined the wilderness preservation movement for the nation. The Sierra Club in particular popularized the mystique of America's mountains, and Schrepfer uses its history to develop a sweeping interpretation of twentieth-century wilderness perceptions and national conservation politics." "Schrepfer follows men like John Muir, Wilderness Society cofounder Robert Marshall, and the Sierra Club's own David Brower into the mountains - and finds them frequently in the company of women. She tells how mountaineering women shaped their lives through high adventure well before the twentieth century, participating in Appalachian mountain clubs and joining men as "Mazamas" - mountain goats - scaling Oregon's Mount Hood."--BOOK JACKET
