Savage Dreams: A Journey into the Landscape Wars of the American Westby Rebecca Solnit
Behind the scenic beauty of the American West is a bloody history of conquest, conflict, and exploitation. Part travelogue, part history, and part literary meditation on the landscape, this book describes in convincing detail how this violent heritage has left the region with many unresolved problems and much ongoing suffering.
