Summary
In his biography of the former Wisconsin Senator, Christofferson (a Milwaukee based political consultant) traces the Gaylord Nelson's environmental and progressive political principals and activities from his childhood in the small town of Clear Lake at the end of the Progressive Era to his activities with the Wilderness Society in the 1980s and 1990s. The bulk of the biography focuses on Nelson's political career, especially his sponsoring and fighting for environmental legislation, including the establishment of Earth Day in 1970.
