Working Wilderness: The Malpai Borderlands Group and the Future of the Western Range
By Nathan Sayre

Which is worse, cows or condos? Can the public lands be "saved" if the private lands are paved? What does the future hold for the West's vaunted open lands, its ever more precious water, and its fire-prone forests? Is ranching a doomed myth--as its critics charge--or the key to real conservation? NATHAN SAYRE is assistant professor of geography at the University of California, Berkeley. According to the Journal of American History, "Sayre imparts real insight on the Southwest's ecology, politics, economy, and culture". To order visit Rio Nuevo at or call 800-969-9558.
