Rightful heritage : Franklin D. Roosevelt and the land of America
Unabridged ; CD.
Brinkley chronicles Franklin Delano Roosevelt's under-sung legacy as the founder of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and premier protector of America's public lands. FDR built from scratch dozens of State Park systems and scenic roadways. Pristine landscapes such as the Great Smokies, the Everglades, Joshua Tree, the Olympics, Big Bend, Channel Islands, Mammoth Cave, and the slickrock wilderness of Utah were forever saved by his leadership. Brinkley traces FDR's love for the natural world from his youth exploring the Hudson River Valley and bird watching. As America's president from 1933 to 1945, Roosevelt, consummate political strategist, established hundreds of federal migratory bird refuges and spearheaded the modern endangered species movement.
