In Revolution on the Range, Courtney White challenges the conventional wisdom that those who wanted to work the land and those who wanted to protect it had fundamentally different—and irreconcilable—values. He argues that ranchers and environmentalists have more in common than they’ve typically admitted: a love of wildlife, a deep respect for nature, and a strong allergic reaction to suburbanization. The real conflict has not been over ethics, but approaches. As ranchers and environmentalists find common cause, they’re discovering new ways to live on—and preserve—the land they both love. Revolution on the Range is the story of that journey, and a heartening vision of the new American West.

Across the U.S. West, conservationists, ranchers, farmers, and forest workers are acknowledging their common ground and joining together to protect the wide open spaces from the economic and demographic forces that are fragmenting them and destroying the habitat and watersheds upon which people, plants, and animals depend. A new vision is arising that perceives conservation of biodiversity and sustainable resource use as compatible and symbiotic, not antithetical. Such a vision calls for a more inclusive and expansive environmentalism that encourages local food and forestry production while preserving biodiversity and the large, interconnected landscapes upon which biodiversity depends. Written by an impressive array of scientists, conservationists, scholars, ranchers, and foresters, this volume explores the history of land policy and working landscapes in the Western U.S., the successful and failed efforts to promote environmental and economic sustainability on these landscapes, and the emerging institutional frameworks for conserving them. It concludes by recommending practices and policy crucial to the future preservation of these working landscapes.
