The National Audubon Society
Speaking for Nature

edited by Les Line

100 years of the National Audubon Society and the beautiful results of their conservation efforts are captured in stunning photography and superb essays.

The National Audubon Society: Speaking for Nature celebrates America's most recognized environmental organization with an unrivaled assemblage of more than 150 stunning, full-color photographs by the world's foremost wildlife photographers; showcasing the successful efforts made to preserve our natural resources--from herons to wolves and grizzly bears, whooping cranes to whales, and condors to caribou--and the precious lands they inhabit. In addition, the thoughtful incorporation of vintage photography of special individuals and moments and reproductions of John James Audubon's paintings complement the text while adding a visual historic perspective.

This 240-page volume brings this important history to life through fascinating and informative essays and a chronology covering a century of Audubon Society conservation efforts. Each of the ten chapters focuses on a specific decade and the key environmental issues that defined the period. The authors are prominent conservation writers whose bylines have regularly appeared in Audubon magazine, and the text is eloquently brought together by Les Line, editor-in-chief of Audubon for 25 years.
