Description
More than any other landscape, the Rocky Mountains have generated an ongoing procession of fierce, poetic American dreams, posits naturalist Gary Ferguson. From the rebellious sons of wealthy industrialists to African American trappers, from affluent young women struggling for suffrage to the anti-establishment hippies of the 1960s, the region has served as a landscape of liberty for our cultural outcasts. Tracing the geological, historical, and cultural evolution of the Rockies, Ferguson provides a fresh look at how the nation's wild lands inspired some of our most cherished notions of freedom, as well as how much we stand to lose should we forget our connections to those lands.
