During National Park Week (April 17 – 25), Audrey and Frank Peterman’s book, Legacy on the Land will be priced at the special discounted rate of $15, 25% off the book’s cover price of $19.95.
Legacy on the Land tells how a Black couple came to discover their National inheritance and why every American should care. It exhorts readers to explore America’s public lands and exposes children to this birthright. Most importantly, the book demolishes the common stereotype that people of color are not interested in the environment. Through Audrey’s and Frank’s prose, their story is told, while revealing the systemic barriers that keep the face of conservation white and Anglo and stressing that all Americans have a role to play in the protection of the public lands.
Writer and producer of Ken Burns’ The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” Dayton Duncan said “Audrey Peterman [‘s]… enthusiasm forthe beauty of the parks and often little-known stories of the people who helped create them is truly infectious. … She introduced me to the story of the Jones family in Biscayne Bay- and it’s now in Ken Burns’ and my documentary film.”
