Historian Douglas Brinkley talked about his forthcoming book, The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America (Harper; July 28, 2009). The book tells the story of President Theodore Roosevelt’s contribution to the early days of the conservation movement. Between 1901 and 1909, he was responsible for 230 million acres of land being set aside as wilderness. Mr. Brinkley sees this as the most important initiative by a U.S. president between the Civil War and World War I.

This portion of the two-part interview was conducted in the Roosevelt Room at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The center is part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
