Overview

Unlike other parts of the United States, deep change came slowly to the West, especially the rural west, which retained many of its 19th-century roots. Now, with the decline of the West's natural resource economics -- oil and gas drilling, mining, and ranching -- change is proceeding rapidly. As in the homestead era, the West is again open to resettlement. What will replace the old industries and way of life, and what forces for change will shape the future? Reopening the Western Frontier documents these dramatic changes that lie ahead. Some of the West's most astute and informed observers contributed to this book, originally created by the editors of High Country News, the award-winning newspaper based in Paonia, Colorado.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Frederick Jackson Turner's frontier thesis is further questioned in these articles first published in High Country News, the environment-oriented newspaper based in Colorado. Other sections of the nation already have undergone vast social and economic changes, leaving the rural West once again the remaining frontier. The disintegrating economy based on farming, ranching, mining, logging, oil, and gas is explored and the bitter conflicts among land owners, developers, conservationists, corporations, and politicians is well documented. The most often cited solution to repair the economy is tourism, which could create more problems than it solves. A well-written collection of specific examples to aid anyone in understanding the current situation.-- Sondra Brunhumer, Western Michigan Univ. Libs., Kalamazoo
Booknews
The material contained here (with some modifications) was originally published as four special issues of High country news, a newspaper based in Colorado. The articles address issues of the contemporary American West. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
