The Last Ranch: A Colorado Community and the Coming Desert (Harvest Book)by Sam Bingham
Synopses & Reviews
The year environmentalist Sam Bingham spent in Colorado's San Luis Valley showed him that environmental disasters of global consequence are happening in our own backyard. THE LAST RANCH tells of the desperate efforts of one community to stop the encroaching desert. "A rare and beautifully written account of hard lives in hard times, and must reading for those interested in the future of the American West".--KIRKUS REVIEWS. 384 PP.
In a book that is “must reading for those interested in the future of the american West” (Kirkus Reviews), Bingham shows how ranchers in Colorados San Luis Valley-along with a Rhodesian expert, a Canadian billionaire, and a Hindu mathematician-coped with an unfolding environmental disaster: the rapid desertification of their land.
