📝What Does the Desert Say Book Synopsis :
📝Desert solitaire Book Synopsis : Desert solitaire è diventato un libro di culto sin dalla sua pubblicazione, nel 1968. Un racconto provocatorio e mistico, arrabbiato e appassionato, in cui Edward Abbey ci restituisce la sua esperienza di ranger nell'Arches National Monument, nel Sudest dello Utah, catturandone l'essenza e trasmettendoci il desiderio di vivere nella natura e conoscerla nella sua forma più pura: silenzio, lotta, bellezza abbagliante. Ma Desert solitaire è anche il grido angosciato di un uomo pronto a sfidare il crescente sfruttamento operato dall'industria petrolifera, mineraria e del turismo. Sono trascorsi quasi cinquant'anni, e le osservazioni di Abbey, le sue battaglie, non hanno perso nulla della loro rilevanza. Anzi, oggi più che mai, Desert solitaire ci chiama a combattere, mettendoci di fronte a un'ultima domanda fondamentale: riusciremo a salvare ciò che resta dei nostri tesori naturali prima che i bulldozer manovrati dal profitto colpiscano ancora?
📒The Wilderness Reader ✍ Frank Bergon

📒Cadillac Desert ✍ Marc Reisner
📝Cadillac Desert Book Synopsis : "The definitive work on the West's water crisis." --Newsweek The story of the American West is the story of a relentless quest for a precious resource: water. It is a tale of rivers diverted and dammed, of political corruption and intrigue, of billion-dollar battles over water rights, of ecological and economic disaster. In his landmark book, Cadillac Desert, Marc Reisner writes of the earliest settlers, lured by the promise of paradise, and of the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles politicians and business interests to ensure the city's growth. He documents the bitter rivalry between two government giants, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in the competition to transform the West. Based on more than a decade of research, Cadillac Desert is a stunning expose and a dramatic, intriguing history of the creation of an Eden--an Eden that may only be a mirage.
