Summary
Hackett discusses his youth in the Sierra, impressions of John Muir, Sierra Club high trips, the campaign to save Hetch Hetchy, outstanding members of the early Sierra Club, his personal view of religion and society, and the division within the club over Hetch Hetchy. He continues with his reflections on the club and conservation in the 1960s and 1970s and the changes in the club from chiefly a local organization with an emphasis on mountaineering to a nation-wide conservation group
