About this book

Brings together ten of DeVoto's harsh and still timely essays on Western US conservation issues, along with his unfinished conservationist manifesto, Western Paradox, which has never before been published.

This book is the fascinating record of DeVoto's crusade to save the West from itself... His arguments, insights, and passion are as relevant and urgent today as they were when he first put them on paper. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., from the Foreword
