Overview

A how-to guide to conservation easements for ranchers, conservationists, and developers concerned with protecting the natural and scenic values of ranch lands in the western US. Declining cattle prices, the increasing value of land for development, and other forces outside land owners' control often make family ranchers think they have only two choices: ranching or development; the guide's aim is to show that other options exist. Also of interest to land trust staff, lawyers, appraisers, accountants, real estate brokers, and general readers. Co-author Anella is an architect in Albuquerque, NM, and Wright teaches geography at New Mexico State U., Las Cruces. The volume is nicely punctuated with spare, unpeopled landscape photos in b&w. Wide format: 10x7". Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
