Join author Pamela LeBlanc for an insightful look into her new book, “My Stories, All True,” which recounts her friend David Bamberger’s journey through life as an entrepreneur and conservationist. Bamberger is best known for his work to restore his 5,500-acre preserve, earning him national acclaim. Listen to tales of Bamberger’s experience with loss, growth, and relationships with fantastic friends (such as Sam Walton, Jane Goodall, and Lady Bird Johnson) — and how he came to own and tend his land, of which he says: “Fifty years ago, this ranch had the reputation of being the worst piece of real estate in Blanco County” (Bamberger in a Texas Monthly piece penned by LeBlanc).
In the book, written over the course of a year with a storyteller’s flair and insightful commentary from LeBlanc, Bamberger shares the tales of a remarkable life as a resourceful country boy, a savvy entrepreneur, and a consummate conservationist whose vision has set the standard for the restoration of nature on private lands worldwide.
