Drawing particularly upon broad interviews with a various array of brokers on each side of the debate—ranchers, environmentalists, scientists, land managers, executive officials—on ancient narratives, and on her personal conflicting stories as a person who grew up with those that paintings the western lands, she demonstrates that it's attainable to exploit alterations to resolve, instead of to irritate, the entrenched difficulties that bridge land and language.  

By integrating her richly textured case examine of a delicate zone with rhetorical techniques to narrative, science-based argument, and collective identities, Stevens makes an important contribution to the fields of rhetoric, land administration, and cultural studies.
