Description

T. Gilbert Pearson (1873-1943) was one of the most influential ornithologists in North America, crusading for the cause of conservation a century before the current movement to save the Earth's resources. Working in the American Ornithologist's Union, Pearson and other pioneering conservationists radically altered public attitudes towards birds, lobbied laws through state legislature, and involved the government in bird protection. Their activities, documented in this biography of Pearson's early career, spearheaded the movement that led to today's Audobon societies.
