The first collection of the conservation essays of Puiitzer-winner Bernard DeVoto (1897-1955), DeVoto's West will introduce a new generation to pungent, eloquent prose that has retained its relevance and remains a remarkably current and timely argument for protecting public lands. Editor Edward K. Muller introduces these essays (many of which originally appeared in Harper's renowned column The Easy Chair) that address the plundering of resources by absentee eastern corporations, Westerners' conflicted relationship to exploitation, and the degradation of the national parks.
