What People are saying about this

One of the most wasteful tragedies of the West has been the conflict between ranchers and conservationists. Dan Dagget's book states the terms of an authentic reconciliation: renew the sense of community, of common good and common ground; work together to define common goals and to achieve them. The ranchers and conservationists who populate these pages have quit fighting over the contested landscapes and have begun restoring them. It would be hard to overestimate the importance of their stories. I read this book eagerly, recognizing it as something I have been waiting for, and it gave me hope.

Dan Dagget and Jay Dusard have done us all a grand favor by exploding the false dichotomies of 'user' versus 'conservator' and 'rancher' versus 'environmentalist.'
