On Land - The Voice of Stewardship in the American West

Wise stewardship of our lands and natural resources is the fundamental challenge of our time. If we are to recover the American West to health and abundance, we need a new story about our relationship to land, rooted in an ethic of stewardship. On Land brings forth that story clearly and beautifully, in the voices of the people who are living it, at the leading edge of a future that puts people and nature together again for the benefit of both.
