The late environmentalist Lewis Green fought on behalf of clean air, clean water, and unspoiled land for the citizenry to enjoy in St. Louis and Missouri. A new book by authors Florence Shinkle and Patricia Tummons details many of his now historic fights to save our environment. It’s titled, “A Force For Nature.”

If you like Queeny Park, you’ll like the new book’s chapter on his 20-year fight to save that land for public use. If you are still laughing at the idea of building a publicly-funded stadium for Bill Bidwill in Missouri Bottoms’ mud, you’ll like the chapter on that political football.
