Description - Reopening the Western Frontier by High Country News

Unlike other parts of the United States, deep change came slowly to the West, especially the rural west, which retained many of its 19th-century roots. Now, with the decline of the West's natural resource economics -- oil and gas drilling, mining, and ranching -- change is proceeding rapidly. As in the homestead era, the West is again open to resettlement. What will replace the old industries and way of life, and what forces for change will shape the future? "Reopening the Western Frontier" documents these dramatic changes that lie ahead. Some of the West's most astute and informed observers contributed to this book, originally created by the editors of "High Country News," the award-winning newspaper based in Paonia, Colorado.
