aplombborn into wealth and privilege the grandson of copper magnate thomas lawson and massachusetts governor samuel w mccall the tale of tom mccall's ascendancy to elected official is a fascinating one armed with a journalism degree from the university of oregon mccall went on to do considerable work in radio and television increasing his public profile all the while before first running for office and losing in 1954 after a brief stint as secretary of state mccall won the 1966 gubernatorial election fiercely independent and widely respected in mccall's eight years as governor he served to reshape the political landscape of oregon like no one else had in the state's historycredited for developing and signing some of the nation's most progressive ideas into law mccall remained a republican throughout his political career as an homage to his grandfather than because of any deep ideological leanings the republican party would eventually foment a deep loathing for what they perceived as his failing loyalties frustrated by the two party system and its inability to enact any meaningful change mccall regularly called for a third force in american politics mccall's success as a politician was due in no small part to his unwavering and outspoken devotion to oregon her constituents and her future well being mccall's legacy is an extraordinary one and the changes he brought to the state came be to known nationally as the oregon story always with a uip or sound byte at the ready none of his candid remarks attracted attention than his infamous and often mischaracterized comment to come visit us again and again but for heaven's sake don't come here to live worried about the irreparable environmental degradation that inevitably follows rampant growth and development mccall set in place some of the nation's most innovative and forward thinking legislationunder mccall oregon became the first state to enact a bottle bill offering a deposit and refund system for reusable cans and bottles and effectively banning non returnable beverage containers the law had and continues to have the simultaneous effect of increasing recycling while decreasing litter mccall spent much of his administration focused on environmental issues including the cleanup of the notoriously polluted willamette river detailed in a 1972 national geographic cover story as governor he also instituted the first statewide land use planning system urban growth boundaries and strengthened a law protecting public ownership of all oregon beachesmccall was not without his critics though many of them were often political opponents or chastised business executives and his life was not without its share of personal setbacks and hardships fire at eden's gate does not seek to canonize the late governor but instead recreates a tumultuous era in state and national politics the book portrays mccall as a dedicated public servant who cherished nothing than his role as the state's elected trustee rare is the politician that cares about anything than the trajectory of their own political career but tom mccall was indeed a rare and refined individualin an era when political discourse has come to be ruled as much by moneyed interests as it has by fallacious and vitriolic onslaughts it is beyond refreshing to say nothing of encouraging to read about an elected official who was beyond the pettiness of partisan politics tom mccall was a man of great character possessed by an integrity and sense of justice alien to most elected officials the mark left upon our state by his tireless work is an indelible one and all oregonians present and future shall continue to enjoy the benefits therefrom fire at eden's gate is an exceptional work that recalls the labors of an exceptional leader that the book seems so effortlessly well written only enriches the story's wide appeal whether for crafting a portrait of an important political figure or for distilling the uniue essence of an american epoch or simply because it is an altogether intriguing work of nonfiction fire at eden's gate is an important singular and unforgettable work heroes are not giant statues framed against a red sky they are people who say this is my community and it's my responsibility to make it better tom mccall
