In Revolution on the Range, Courtney White challenges the conventional wisdom that those who wanted to work the land and those who wanted to protect it had fundamentally different--and irreconcilable--values. He argues that ranchers and environmentalists have more in common than they've typically admitted: a love of wildlife, a deep respect for nature, and a strong allergic reaction to suburbanization. The real conflict has not been over ethics, but approaches. As ranchers and environmentalists find common cause, they're discovering new ways to live on--and preserve--the land they both love. Revolution on the Range is the story of that journey, and a heartening vision of the new American West
