    I won this book from Goodreads. It's a political science book. Dr. Jo Arney contends the solution to saving our wilderness lies with the activism and will of America's citizens. The Wilderness Act was passed in 1964 and and America contains more than 750 designated wilderness areas and over 109 million acres. It is very important that we safeguard the wildnerness for the good of society. I won this book from Goodreads. It's a political science book.
