"Smith's greatest achievement in this book is his portrayal of Udall as a key figure in a pivotal period in American conservation history. . . . Smith's biography is certainly timely in its focus on the critically important but relatively low national profile of the office of Secretary of the Interior and on one of its most consequential leaders."--National Parks Traveler
