MEDIA REVIEWS

""Places of Quiet Beauty" is a wonderfully crafted story about people and politics and how each in turn influenced the other. Rich in biographical detail, "Places" examines the conflicting demands that are placed on parks and the implications of the constant ebbing and flowing of public and political support. Rebecca Conard, through her wonderful mosaic of people, places, politics, and the environmental movement, reminds us that the maintenance of a strong park program depends on a constantly vigilant public and progressive and supportive legislatures. Enjoyable, educational, and highly readable, "Places of Quiet Beauty" helps us understand why we treasure our parks and what, in the final analysis, 'land stewardship' really means."--Dwight T. Picaithley, Chief Historian, National Park Service
