Introduction by Teresa Jordan
In this collection of 22 essays, the editors have brought together some of the best–and most insightful–writing on ranching in the West. These writers explore the changing landscape of the West, and how, in an age of huge, corporate-owned ranches, the small rancher can survive. This book brings together the best writers in the West today—-including poets, ranchers, and conservationists—-in a one-of-a-kind, unique look at the West.
If you care about the West, you must care about the lands of the West—lands that are disappearing rapidly, along with the people and cultures that go along with them.
