An American Crusade for Wildlife


By James B. Trefethen

Here, in one volume, is the definitive history of wildlife conservation in America. James Trefethen is a professional conservationist who has spent a lifetime studying the history of wildlife laws and population trends. Research for this book began many years ago, when the Boone and Crockett Club commissioned the author to write a history of the Club. In the course of his investigations, Trefethen found that the men behind the first great conservation movement were the founders and members of the Boone and Crockett Club, and that the early history of B&C was in reality a chronicle of America's awakening conservation conscience.

Trefethen's book presents a refreshingly different picture of wildlife conservation in North America.
