The Club and Its Leaders
Books and articles on the Sierra Club and its leaders, such as John Muir, David Brower, and Ansel Adams. This is a work in progress -- if you know of a book or article that would fit in this list please let us know.

Sierra Club Exhibit Format Series
The Sierra Club's Exhibit Format Book Series was launched in 1960 with the publication of This is the American Earth by Ansel Adams and Nancy Newhall. Twenty books were published in the Exhibit Format Series, mostly edited by David Brower. The award-winning series made a significant contribution to the field of conservation photography.

Environmental Classics
Environmental classics like Silent Spring and The Population Bomb thrust previously ignored environmental concerns into the public consciousness. The books listed here have all been important in educating and persuading the public about environmental issues and have been influential in the American conservation movement.
