Joan Irvine Smith is the great-granddaughter of James Irvine, who assembled about 120,000 acres of what is now Orange County, California, to form the Irvine Ranch. Smith's reverence for California's native plants and animals inspired her to become an environmental activist. She also donated the land for what became the University of California at Irvine, and continues to fund numerous environmental, cultural, and historical endeavors, such as the search for new treatments for spinal cord injury.--From publisher description.
