Nature Bats Last – 02.16.16

This week we visited with Doug Peacock, a prolific writer who lectures regularly about wilderness and veterans issues. He served two tours in Vietnam as a Green Beret medic, trying to preserve life on the edge of the battlefield. He came home an emotional and spiritual wreck. With the publication of Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang in 1975, Peacock became a hero not only to other veterans, but to a nascent contingent of environmentalists. Peacock was the subject of a feature film about grizzlies and Vietnam called Peacock’s War. The film premiered on PBS Nature, and won the grand prizes at the Telluride Mountain film and the Snowbird film festivals. You can read more about Peacock at his website, dougpeacock.net
