Re: [at-l] Favorite Books



Here's a great book to read, own, give to somebody:

Beyond the 100th Meridian

It's by Wallace Stegner and is the story of Major John Wesley Powell and
how, among other things, Powell summited Long's Peak, explored the Grand
Canyon, surveyed much of the West and what it all meant to the folks back in
Washington, DC, in the days before really reliable reporting about what was
going on a half a continent away.

Anyone with conservation/environmental protection bent would enjoy it.
