A biography of Bob Marshall, a hiker and wilderness advocate, is presented. He was born in New York City on January 2, 1901, the third child of Louis and Florence Marshall. He is celebrated as the original Forty-Sixer, the first to climb all 46 of Adirondack's peaks above 4,000 feet. Together with some colleagues, he formed The Wilderness Society, which, according to the author, became one of the most effective voices for preservation in the U.S.
