285 pp. White panels, gray cloth spine with silver imprint. DJ with slight tear. Near Fine Condition. The Environmental Showdown in Yellowstone and the American West. Montana journalist Robbins turns a sharp, environmental eye on the multifaceted ecological crisis now being experienced in the mountains, plains, parks, and private lands of the West. Distinguishing between the Old West--a time and place in which logging, mining, and agriculture predominated--and the New West, in which those activities have been curtailed due to the settlement of the region and dwindling resources, Robbins uses the situation in Yellowstone National Park and in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem as a frequent focal point. Morrow, 1993 First Edition.
