Summary
"A decade ago the American West was being torn apart by failed politics and bitter lawsuits, arson, and death threats. Battles raged over who should be allowed to do what with the land. While conventional wisdom told us compromise was impossible, a small group of ranchers and environmentalists crossed enemy lines for the sake of preserving the land they all deeply loved. And remarkable changes started to occur." "With Revolution on the Range, Courtney White brings us the story of these peacemakers, including White himself, who began turning resentment, conflict, and suspicion into respect, cooperation, and trust. It is a powerful lesson in resolving environmental challenges, not just on the range but across the land."--BOOK JACKET
