Michael Frome is the pioneer conservation journalist and the premier environmental muckraker who knows a lot about integrity and dedication. He spent years as a media writer defending the environment, while many of his peers played it safe. Frome named names and pointed fingers, often forcing politicians and public officials to explain and remedy their environmental negligence. His boldness often got him fired, but there was always another path for him to pursue or another publisher willing to promote his fiery dedication to conservation. In this memoir, Frome tells how he developed an interest in conservation and what motivated him to pursue nature preservation. He reviews the years he taught himself and others how to write subjectively, live purposefully, and age gracefully.
