This interview includes brief commentaries from Stewart Brandborg, Bill LaCroix, and an unnamed third party regarding various documents. Most of the subjects relate to the fight to expand the wilderness system from nine million acres to nearly 200 million acres between 1964 and 1978. Brandborg briefly discusses his role in the struggle against the Alaskan pipeline and ensuing backlash from White House Counsel Chuck Colson.

The audio includes many long pauses between comments. Unsubstantial commentary about unidentified documents has been left out of this transcript.
