Riassunto: Becoming Wilderness explores the little-known backstory of Isle Royale's twenty-year journey from a largely unknown island in Lake Superior to the nation's first wilderness national park. Author Amalia Baldwin reveals the complex interplay of people, politics, and the evolving concept of wilderness behind the simple story that has been told of the park's formation.
The story of Isle Royale National Park is a complex one; it is a story that involves large social and political movements, geographic challenges, and action by people who love the island. It is a story that is not over. The questions asked and decisions made in the history of the park are questions and decisions that are still contemplated today. What exactly is a wilderness? How should it look? Who belongs there? The way in which these questions are answered determines how future visitors will see Isle Royale's past. Wilderness on Isle Royale is a living, changing landscape. It is the people who love it that give it breath, shape its contours, and decide which story will be told in the years to come.
About the Author: Amalia Tholen Baldwin was born in Traverse City, Michigan, and grew up camping, hiking, swimming, and playing around the Great Lakes. Following her sophomore year at Yale University, Amalia interned with the Student Conservation Association at Windigo Ranger Station on Isle Royale. She fell in love with the island and national park work during that summer. After graduating from Yale with a BA in Anthropology, Amalia spent five years as an interpretive ranger for the National Park Service in Yellowstone, Denali, and Death Valley National Parks, in addition to several more summers at Isle Royale. In 2006, Amalia enrolled in a master's program at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin--Madison. This book is an adaptation of her master's thesis. Amalia now lives in Madison with her husband and son, works as an educator for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and dreams of returning to Windigo.
