Throughout American history, written works ranging from Common Sense to The Jungle have inspired rebellion, social movements and renaissance. In the same way, books have helped motivate conservationists to protect our wild places for future generations of anglers and sportsmen and women.
In the fall 2010 issue of Trout, we put together a short review of the top eleven books we believe every coldwater conservationist should have on their shelf.
Last Child in the Woods is just one of the great books we featured. It discusses the importance of getting the next generation of conservationists out there learning about nature. The book even spurred TU to create its Stream Explorers youth membership.
Make sure you take a look and see what your collection is missing. If there is a book that isn’t featured on our list that you feel is an essential read let us know in the comment section.
