His successes dot the landscape and are evident in all the natural features that bear his name: forests, lakes, trails, and glaciers.

Literary naturalists transcend political boundaries, social concerns, and historical milieus; they speak for what Henry Beston called the "other nations" of the planet. Their message acquires more weight and urgency as wild places become increasingly scarce.
