On Politics And Parks

Availability: In stock



By George Bristol.

When George Bristol first saw the mountains surrounding East Glacier, Montana in the early summer of 1961, he was, in his own words, awed to his depths. Thus began a love affair with nature and public parks that has endured for more than fifty years. This same love affair would lead Bristol to become a crusader for America's national parks and later, to be largely credited for the rescue of the ailing public park system in his home state of Texas.

In On Politics and Parks, Bristol tells his own story in lively prose that includes many intriguing peeks at behind-the-scenes events in Washington DC, Texas and elsewhere.
