Enchantment and Exploitation: The Life and Hard Times of a New Mexico Mountain Range (Paperback)William DeBuys (author)
- We can order this
In a new final chapter deBuys examines ongoing transformations in the mountains' natural systems-including, most notably, developments related to wildfires-with significant implications for both the land and the people who depend on it. As the climate absorbs the effects of an industrial society, deBuys argues, we can no longer expect the environmental future to be a reiteration of the environmental past.
