While George Bird Grinnell's achievements are famous & enduring, his self-effacement & determination to minimize his own accomplishments & to remain in the background have almost removed his name from public recognition. He deserves better. This book chronicles the life of this famous anthropologist, Indian authority, author, naturalist & explorer. From his years at Yale, through the establishment of the first Audubon Society, to his receipt of the Roosevelt Memorial Association Gold Medal & becoming President of the National Parks Association, this book follows his life & achievements.
