In The Land: Our Gift and Wild Hope, Rae Marie Taylor offers a timely look at the threats posed, in particular, on the region's wildlife and people, their homes and cultures. While telling her own story of loss in the Rocky Mountain/Rio Grande corridor, she also reveals a vigorous hope found among the many Westerners collaborating in sustainable approaches. In celebration of the earth's gradual renewal, she brings to light the New West's use of local traditions, innovative ranching and restoration practices, and scientific insights affirming the importance of earth-based values. Eyewitness accounts, interviews, lively anecdotes, and an occasional poem inspire within the listener a deepening affection for the earth.
