Annotation "Chip Ward's three-year odyssey took him from his backyard in Utah to Arizona's Sonoran Desert, east to the forests of Vermont and New York, and finally to the marbled halls of Washington, D.C. He reports on behind-the-scenes efforts to "re-wild" the North American continent; the campaign to drain Lake Powell and restore Glen Canyon to its natural state; and the struggle to keep nuclear waste off Western Shoshone ancestral lands and, ultimately, to abolish all nuclear power and weapons. The author shows that uniting these and many similar efforts around the country is a dedication to creating a new, more enduring vision for living on the planet."--BOOK JACKET.
