In the remote wetlands of eastern Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, Nancy Langston has found a new western parable. Where Land and Water Meet is an engaging history of desolate high desert wetlands with vital implications for natural landscapes everywhere.--Ann Vileisis, author of Discovering the Unknown Landscape: A History of America's Wetlands "Tightly argued, cogent, and eminently readable ... Where Land and Water Meet will find a wide readership among ... historians, range managers, ranchers, and environmental groups."--Mark Fiege, author of Irrigated Eden: The Making of an Agricultural Landscape in the American West "Langston combines rigorous historical scholarship, rich knowledge of ecological science, and thoughtful criticism of past and present natural resource management with a scrupulously fair-minded effort to understand the motives of different human actors, seeking always for ways in which history can make genuine practical contributions to contemporary management and policy."--From the Foreword by William Cronon "Where Land and Water meet, in a profoundly insightful manner, details the story of social forces at play in managing the ecology of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon. I grew up in the same territory, in agriculture, managing land and water, responsible for mistakes just like those made at malheur, and it looks to me as if Nancy Langston's got the story dead right. But she gives us more than history, she also proposes a useable problem-solving model. This book is a gift. The American West, and the world, need many more like it." -- William Kittredge, author of Owning it All
