T.A. BarronÂs passion for the wonders of nature, and his belief in the heroic potential of every person, radiate through his books, many of which are international bestsellers. His award-wining novels, read by children and adults alike, include his new trilogy The Great Tree of Avalon (a New York Times bestseller), The Lost Years of Merlin (currently being developed into a feature film), and The Ancient One (the story of a brave teenage girl and a great redwood tree).
Barron devotes significant time to supporting conservation causes, frequently speaking and writing about the environment. ÂAs a nation, we are what we save,Â Barron wrote in The Boston Globe. ÂThe value of America's public lands cannot be measured in board feet, tons of coal, or sales of all-terrain vehicles. Once wilderness is lost, it is lost forever. And the biggest losers will be generations of Americans yet unborn.Â
Hosted by the NRDC Action Fund's own Frances Beinecke, the NRDC Action Fund Blog (http://blog.nrdcactionfund.org/) gives readers the chance to exchange comments, participate in online chats, and get organized to take action. With personal reflections and a fresh look at the issues, Beinecke calls attention to the dangers posed by the Bush Administration's policies and tells readers about what they can do to help stop them.
The NRDC Action Fund is spearheading the fight for AmericaÂs environment on Capitol Hill. A non-profit organization operating under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, the Action Fund is leading a massive campaign, funded by ordinary Americans, to halt and reverse the Bush AdministrationÂs corporate-sponsored, anti-environmental agenda. The NRDC Action Fund is an affiliate of The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the nation's most effective environmental action organization.
