Cottrell-Baldwin Series: This Land Was Saved

Looking for some New Year reading? Look no further than Jeffrey Ryan’s This Land Was Saved for You and Me! Newly released, this nonfiction hardcover calls upon names such as Frederick Law Olmsted and Gifford Pinchot to trace the history behind forester efforts to keep America’s public land “forever wild.” Learn about the many wonderful people working tirelessly behind the scenes to protect and manage natural resources so that they remain accessible for generations to come.

Jeffrey will join us to highlight excerpts from his work and take questions from readers. Bring your copy of this great insight into American natural history to get it signed by Jeffrey or buy one at the signing.

Jeffrey Ryan lives in Maine, where he pursues his passion for exploring both the outdoors and the dusty paths of history. His many outdoor adventures have inspired several books including Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike on America’s Trail, and Blazing Ahead, a history of the Appalachian Trail’s creation. When he is not researching or writing, Ryan can be found in his vintage 1985 VW camper, touring the backroads of America and Canada.

The annual Cottrell-Baldwin series is co-sponsored by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the NH Division of Forests & Lands Caroline A. Fox Research & Demonstration Forest.
