Abstract:

"Fran and Frederick Hamerstrom were born in New England in the early 1900s. After marrying, they moved to Wisconsin in 1935 to become students of Aldo Leopold, who assigned them a research project studying the prairie chickens of Wisconsin in order to save them from extinction. The Hamerstroms spent more than 30 years sharing the message of wildlife conservation across the state. Fran was a flamboyant and prolific writer of journal articles and popular books. Frederick was an intellectual with a rigorous scientific mind. They were known throughout central Wisconsin for the way they lived: in an old, unheated farmhouse, with no indoor plumbing. They mentored hundreds of future scientists and welcomed thousands of people to their home to help with the yearly prairie chicken booming season count. They left a lasting legacy on our state that should not be forgotten. The book emphasizes their contribution to wildlife conservation"--Provided by publisher.
