Darwin Lambert's autobiography:
A lifelong odyssey toward Earthmanship, his word for the process of cooperating with Nature in order to achieve his goals of happiness and a healthy and sustainable... More > Earth.
"Darwin’s knowledge of the workings of nature, his historical perspective, and his various writings earned him a large following among near-by and national conservationists.
