About the Author

Scott Einberger is an environmental historian and public lands enthusiast. He lives in Washington, DC.


"With Distance in His Eyes describes a truly amazing record of effort on behalf of the American people to conserve and protect public resources and care for their needs as they were served by the vast reach of the Department of Interior. This 'small' 280-page book is a summary of Udall's efforts on behalf of the environment from 1960-'68 and beyond."--National Parks Traveler
With Distance in His Eyes offers a concise environmental biography that will appeal to those primarily interested in Udall's conservation legacy, providing a useful primer to the issues and concerns underpinning the environmental movement during the 1960s, and the book should find a ready audience in undergraduate classrooms.--Environmental History
"This carefully researched, absorbing biography documents the remarkable environmental legacy of Stewart Udall. . . . Einberger offers extensive notes validating the material in each chapter. He also draws several perceptive conclusions about Udall's lifework, not the least of which is that he served 'as a model for "working together" and bipartisanship.' This is a relevant biographical study of a significant American environmentalist."--Foreword Reviews
"With Distance in His Eyes is an impressive dive into the life and times of a Western native son. That it is an unabashed valentine is something that most Santa Feans will welcome and eagerly embrace."--Santa Fe Mexican
This book has value in recalling a major environmental champion--something sorely needed in today's political climate. --Western Historical Quarterly
