Reclaiming the Native Home of Hope: Community, Ecology, and the American West

Reclaiming the Native Home of Hope: Community, Ecology, and the American West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"However One Thinks About the territory that lies between the front range of the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada and Cascade ranges", writes Page Stegner, "there is a remarkable longevity to the problems that plague it and to the issues that divide its citizenry...".

Yet, there is in the West an emerging ecological sensitivity and hope for understanding, cooperation, and interdisciplinary collaboration — developments exemplified by this edited compilation of essays from symposia at the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment. Representing such diverse disciplines as literature, history, science, economics, law, and public policy, the eighteen essays selected for the volume capture the essence of the ongoing dialogue on a variety of critical issues confronting Westerners today with regard to community, place, geography, and wilderness.
