Summary
This episode follows the growth of the NPS after the advent of the automobile gave more people than ever the ability to travel to visit the parks. Stephen Mather embraced this opportunity and worked to build more roads in the parks. In North Carolina, Horace Kephart, a reclusive writer, and George Masa, a Japanese immigrant, launched a campaign to protect the last stands of virgin forest in the Smoky Mountains by including them in a park. In Wyoming, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., began quietly buying up land in the Teton Mountain Range and valley in a secret plan to donate it to the government as a park.
