Wild Nevada: Testimonies on Behalf of the Desert Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For many people beyond Nevada's borders, the state is no more than the nation's desert dumping ground for the storage of horrible things. Others know it only for its hedonistic centers of gambling and entertainment. This scandal belies the extraordinary beauty and wonder of the state's wilderness areas and the precious natural, aesthetic, and cultural resources to be found there. In Wild Nevada, editors Roberta Moore and Scott Slovic have assembled twenty-nine writers who know and love the Nevada wilderness to testify on its behalf. Contributors range from literary artists and scholars to environmental and community activists, from leading politicians to ranchers, scientists, and park rangers. But despite the eclectic backgrounds of the writers and their varied perspectives on public policy, they are all united in their devotion to the ecological and aesthetic values of Nevada's threatened wilderness areas. The voices here speak for Nevada, but they also speak for the importance of wilderness everywhere and the role that wild places play in enhancing our human lives and spirit. For those who love Nevada, for those who love the world beyond the concrete pavement, Wild Nevada will be thought-provoking and vital reading.

Synopsis:

Editors Moore and Slovic have assembled 29 writers who know and love the Nevada wilderness to testify on its behalf. For those who love Nevada, for those who love the world beyond the concrete pavement, "Wild Nevada" will be thought-provoking and vital reading.
