This is a short book giving an understanding of David Brower, the first Executive Director of the Sierra Club and founder of several other environmental groups.
From Wikipedia - Encounters is split into three parts, each covering environmentalist David Brower's confrontations with his ideological enemies. The book chronicles his struggles against miners, developers and finally the United States Bureau of Reclamation. McPhee blends traditional journalism—the reporting of facts and accounting of events, with thematic elements more common to fiction.
The book was generally well received in the popular press and became an enduring part of the portrait of David Brower.
Come to the meeting whether you have read the book and/or article or not. At this meeting we will also discuss the next environmental/nature book or article we want to read.
Note the new location: this is a very nice meeting room and we are allowed to have food and beverages (no alcohol)
