Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman: Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland
Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman: Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland by Miriam Horn
2017 | ISBN: 0393354873, 0393247341 | English | 416 pages | EPUB | 1 MB

The story of a huge, largely hidden, and entirely unexpected conservation movement in America.

A Kirkus Best Book of 2016

Many of the men and women doing today's most consequential environmental work―restoring America's grasslands, wildlife, soil, rivers, wetlands, and oceans―would not call themselves environmentalists; they would be too uneasy with the connotations of that word. What drives them is their deep love of the land: the iconic terrain where explorers and cowboys, pioneers and riverboat captains forged the American identity. They feel a moral responsibility to preserve this heritage and natural wealth, to ensure that their families and communities will continue to thrive.

Unfolding as a journey down the Mississippi River, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the stories of five representatives of this stewardship movement: a Montana rancher, a Kansas farmer, a Mississippi riverman, a Louisiana shrimper, and a Gulf fisherman. In exploring their work and family histories and the essential geographies they protect, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman challenges pervasive and powerful myths about American and environmental values.
