Sargent (m), __, environmentalist, Forest Commissioner; Muir (m), __, environmentalist; Gifford Pinchot (m), twenty years their junior, environmentalist, Forest Commissioner.
“Sargent and Muir enter a bluff area overlooking Pike’s Peak. They have escaped the raving escapades of one of the pack horses. Sargent is badly shaken by the ordeal and gradually begins to draw parallels between the antics of the old nag and what he anticipates Congress will subject him to once the Forest Commission Report is made public by President Cleveland. Enter Gifford Pinchot, twenty years their junior, who feels exhilarated by the journey’s challenges as well as the political fight ahead. Sargent and Pinchot begin to lock horns about the report, and Muir acts as a spiritual and philosophical buffer, providing insight into the sacredness of the wilderness at stake.”
