Encounters With the Archdruid

by McPhee, John

Encounters with the Archdruid is a narrative nonfiction book by author John McPhee. The book is split into three parts, each covering environmentalist David Brower's confrontations with his ideological enemies. The book chronicles his struggles against miners, developers and finally the United States Bureau of Reclamation. McPhee blurs traditional journalism, the reporting of facts and accounting of events, with thematic elements more common to fiction. Throughout the work is devised to the contrasting perspectives and struggles within the weight of two conflicting characters.
