Rebels With a Cause in August

In August, National Parks Month, PBS stations nationwide will be showing  Rebels with a Cause, the story of how the coast just north of San Francisco was wrested from looming development to become the open space oasis it is today.  Narrated by Frances McDormand, the much-honored documentary centers on the people–the Rebels–who stepped forward to make the improbable happen. I consulted on this film, which draws on books of mine including An Island in Time: Fifty Years of Point Reyes National Seashore.
