About the author (1968)

Benton MacKaye was the impetus for the Appalachian Trail and the founder of its central management organization, as well as a founder of The Wilderness Society. A Harvard-educated forester, he worked in the early Forest Service but soon turned to somewhat utopian regional planning in the 1920s, writing and organizing until his death in 1976.
