Summary
"This book features the words of over ninety figures who turned Oregon into the primier "green" state. They were explorers, pioneers, settlers, ministers, climbers, scientists, poets, politicians, writers, ranchers, activists, lawyers, and businessmen. They shaped the culture that saw value in nature and demanded policies to protext it. Through their inspiring words, their presence is still felt. Oregon was blessed in being shaped by such talented people."--Back cover
