The National Audubon Society: Speaking for Nature celebrates America's most recognized environmental organization. This volume brings this important history to life through fascinating and informative essays and a chronology covering a century of Audubon Society conservation efforts. Each of the ten chapters focuses on a specific decade and the key environmental issues that defined the period. The authors are prominent conservation writers whose bylines have regularly appeared in Audubon magazine. The thoughtful incorporation of vintage photography of special individuals and moments and reproductions of John James Audubon's paintings complement the text while adding a visual historic perspective. In addition, an unrivaled assemblage of more than 150 stunning, full-color photographs by the world's foremost wildlife photographers celebrates the successful efforts made to preserve our natural resources - from herons to wolves and grizzly bears, whooping cranes to whales, and condors to caribou - and the precious lands they inhabit.
