Learn how those impacted by new national monuments are redefining land protection in the west.Reading more like drama than history, through the analogy created by Clinton's naming of the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument in Southern Utah, Give & Take captures the complexity of the issues surrounding protection of what appears to be the limitless frontier amidst natural and manmade limitations. Give & Take combines frontline reporting by journalists for High Country News, with commentary by some of the West's leading writers. It vividly brings to life a diverse populace, contradictory aspirations and forces, spectacular and fragile natural landscapes, and evolving economic forces that are reshaping the myths regarding the West's lands and culture.
