Imagine Theodore Roosevelt in a PETA ad, hunting with Sarah Palin, and advocating for environmental policy before “green” became a catchphrase for environmentally aware. With incredible foresight and conviction, Roosevelt became the father of both the environmental and wildlife conservation movements, making the rich heritage of places like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Parks possible, yet Americans still disagree over importance of wildlife conservation and outdoor preservation. As the current administration determines its response to the enormous environmental crises of today, author Douglas Brinkley explores how Roosevelt as an “ethical hunter” became a compelling role model as an environmental and conservation activist.
