Item description for Rebel on the Road: And Why I Was Never Neutral by Michael Frome...

Michael Frome is the pioneer conservation journalist and the premier environmental muckraker who knows a lot about integrity and dedication. He spent years as a media writer defending the environment, while many of his peers played it safe. Frome named names and pointed fingers, often forcing politicians and public officials to explain and remedy their environmental negligence. His boldness often got him fired, but there was always another path for him to pursue or another publisher willing to promote his fiery dedication to conservation. In this memoir, Frome tells how he developed an interest in conservation and what motivated him to pursue nature preservation. He reviews the years he taught himself and others how to write subjectively, live purposefully, and age gracefully.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rebel on the Road: And Why I Was Never Neutral?

Ex-student learns more about an influential prof  Sep 4, 2007
Dear Michael, I was really glad to know a bit more about you and where you come from. I was particularly moved by your background in the Communist Party and the work experience you had working in the steel mills. I think this gives you a life that most university students have no concept of; earning a living by hard work. I think you touch on it a bit talking about having to wear hand-me-down clothes and how it built your character. I know that I felt a sense of entitlement with regard to college.

I was glad to know more about your WW II navigator days, glad to hear more about your struggles with newspaper editors, the variety of different people you have worked for and with, interested to hear more of the accolades you have received over the years, and curious about how my life has been shaped by my knowing you.

It wasn't until I had one of my class essays edited by you that I actually knew what other English teachers meant when they would write "Wordy" in the margins of my papers. I appreciated all the input you gave me on that attempt, and other projects, because it made me a much stronger writer.

So a big thank you, Michael, for your kind words, your acute red pen, telling me to "write what I know" and showing me that it is always best to express myself from the heart.

Best regards,

Pasayten Miker
