It was called the largest demonstration in human history, and it permanently changed the nations political agenda. More than one billion people now participate in annual Earth Day activities. The seemingly simple idea--a day set aside to focus on protecting our natural environment--was the brainchild of U.S.

Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. It accomplished, far beyond his expectations, his lifelong goal of putting the environment onto the nations and the worlds political agendas. The life of Nelson, a small-town boy who learned his values and progressive political principles at an early age, is woven through the political history of the twentieth century. Nelsons story intersects at times with Fighting Bob La Follette, Joe McCarthy, and Bill Proxmire in Wisconsin, and with George McGovem, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Russell Long, Walter Mondale, John F.

Kennedy, and others on the national scene.
