This week on The Mountain Life, Lynn and Pete are joined by:
Author Greg Peters who has written about the 193 million acres of forests, mountains, deserts, watersheds, and grasslands, that provide a multitude of uses as diverse as America itself and make up Our National Forests, the title of his new book. This conversation will take a complete look at America’s national forests—their triumphs, challenges, controversies, and vital programs.
Then, Let's Get Physical with author Danielle Friedman who explores how women discovered exercise and reshaped the world. It's the untold history of women’s exercise culture–from jogging and Jazzercise to Jane Fonda–and how women have parlayed physical strength into other forms of power.
