Summary
  • Presents the story of Douglas Tompkins, founder of The North Face, who sold his stake in the company and used his fortune to protect over twenty-five million acres of land in South America from development
  • In 1991 Doug Tompkins abandoned his comfortable life in San Francisco and flew to Patagonia. The founder of groundbreaking companies had come to regret the corporate capitalism from which he had profited from years. As a CEO he had caused much pollution and "made things nobody needed." Now he was determined to reverse the damage to the planet, and maybe even himself. Franklin tells how Tompkins became one of the primary founders of our modern conservation and land protection movement. His dream became his life. Only in death did it become his legacy. -- adapted from jacket
