Award-winning author Nate Schweber brings to life the story of two remarkable environmental warriors — and former Lincoln residents — Avis and Bernard DeVoto. The DeVotos’ decades-long battle to protect public lands and save our National Park system is chronicled in Schweber’s latest book, This America of Ours: Bernard and Avis DeVoto and the Forgotten Fight to Save the Wild.
