The Fall of the Steward
This story is of stewards and stewardship. No story ever just happens without the inspiration of endlessly interesting people, memorable places, and curious events filed away for future embellishment. To the thousands of dedicated employees of public parks whose stewardship dreams have been scarred by the establishment this one’s for you.

Will LaPage writes about stewardship from the perspective of a park system director, activist for parks in several countries, professor of park management, and poet in residence at three US national parks.
Will and his wife, Susan, reside in a village outside Austin, Texas, but they live in the many nearby parks and historic sites.
