Description - Breath of Wilderness by Kristin J. Eggerling

Breath of Wilderness is the story of Sigurd Olson's love for wild places and how that love transformed his life. It inspired him to play a key role in the movement to preserve wilderness throughout North America, including the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the largest lakeland wilderness in the country. Olson's successful writing career, born from his devotion, spread his fervor worldwide. This is a story of one man finding his passion and standing up for what he believed even in the face of tremendous adversity.

[Olson] knew immediately that once the wilderness was gone it would be gone forever. There would be no getting it back.
