Title

Beyond the Hundredth Meridian: John Wesley Powell and the Second Opening of the American West

Description

Powell—adventurer, bureaucrat, and consummate man of science—is portrayed as a visionary leader, often out of step with his contemporaries, whose true significance is most clearly visible in hindsight. In Stegner’s masterful telling, his story is a cautionary tale in the preservation and development of the West’s fragile resources.
