Give-'em-hell Bell

 

With his courage and fierce determination to save Western lands and wildlife, HCN founder and guiding muse Tom Bell is a true prophet (HCN, 8/30/10). A conservationist in the mold of Thoreau, Muir and Leopold, Bell deserves our respect and esteem for his noble fight against avaricious mining and ranching interests hell-bent on pursuing profit at the expense of land and life. If only we all had his tenacity and guts.
