Marc Reisner

Marc Reisner (1948-2000) was, in Jim Harrison's words, "in the upper echelon of those defending the environment with conscience, intelligence, and energy." Born in St. Paul, Reisner was a staff writer for the Natural Resources Defense Council from 1972 to 1979, and received the Alicia Patterson Journalism Fellowship in 1979 to investigate water resources in the West. His book Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award.
