Robert Wyss: The Man Who Built The Sierra Club says
Co-presented with The Seattle Public Library.

Robert Wyss speaks today about David Brower (1912-2000), a central figure of the modern environmental movement and subject of Mr. Wyss’ book, The Man Who Built the Sierra Club: A Life of David Brower (Columbia University Press). In Robert Wyss’ words, “What mattered to David Brower was the long term, not what his contemporaries thought of him. ‘Environmentalists make terrible neighbors,’ he often said, ‘but great ancestors.’ And Brower was both.

“A riveting...extensively researched, balanced account...This absorbing portrait of a flawed yet fascinating figure, beloved and scorned, who defined America’s national parks will engage all biography lovers.” -Library Journal
