Join us for a ride through America's untamed wilderness with Ruby McConnell, author of the book "Wilderness and the American Spirit." In this episode, we uncover the hidden histories and unsung heroes that shaped our nation's vast landscapes, from the intrepid Applegate brothers to the controversial conservationist Gifford Pinchot. Brimming with tales of beaver-fueled exploration, Hollywood hijinks, and dramatic standoffs deep in the Oregon forest, this is one adventure you won't want to miss.
