Beschreibung

This book describes the long, ongoing campaign to secure and preserve for posterity the primeval qualities of these large natural areas. In tracing the campaign's ups and downs, the narrative chronicles a chapter in the regional History of Minnesota, and to a lesser extent, Ontario. But primarily the book illustrates the development of an idea -- wilderness preservation -- an American concept that is finding wider acceptance elsewhere in the world. The evolution of wilderness protection from a dawning hope to a tangible reality is a bright pattern woven throughout the story of the Quetico-Superior county. Worked into the tapestry of regional history, the Quetico-Superior story has made a lasting impression on conservation in the United States and Canada.
