The varying approaches taken by these individuals will serve to emphasize that there are many definitions of conservation, and that many viewpoints are valid. Detailed observations of important figures on both sides of the debate - including some of the most famous and familiar and some less so - provide readers with the knowledge they need to form their own opinions on this topic. Major biographies include such individuals as Rachel Carson, Dixy Lee Ray, John Muir, and James Watt." ;
