Who owns the West? by William Kittredge( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who owns the West? "All of us, of course," says William Kittredge, but this "simple answer ... is sort of beside the point when we get down to considering questions of fairness. Stay joyous under the sun and moon, in the rain and out; that's another halfway answer." Kittredge gives us not easy answers but a sustained meditation on what it means to be a Westerner today. The three essays in Who Owns the West? compose both a celebration of the new West and an elegy for an old West that is fading. Noting that "our ideas of paradise originate in childhood," Kittredge describes, in "Heaven on Earth," growing up in the highland desert country of east Oregon, "an ancient horseback world that is mostly gone." Next, in "Lost Cowboys and Other Westerners," he gives us a series of portraits of inhabitants of the region. Finally, in "Departures," Kittredge turns his eye to the West today, the "new heartland nation" that is being born from the pain and the glory of the past and the struggles and anger of the present
Waste land : meditations on a ravaged landscape by David Hanson( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hanson has documented, often in aerial photographs, four photographic series which show some of the devastations that humans have inflicted upon the environment. The book opens with photographs of Colstrip, Montana and its strip mines, trailer parks, company houses, mine, power plant, and industrial site. The next series is the Minuteman Missile Sites which focuses on one aspect of the American industrial and military landscape: bleak aerial views of silos. The centerpiece of this book is Waste Land, a study of sixty-seven of the most dangerously polluted waste sites in the United States. In this series of triptychs, Hanson juxtaposes an aerial photograph, a modified topographic map, and an EPA site description exposing some of the strategies that corporations and individuals have used to avoid taking responsibility for the contamination. The final sequence is "The Treasure State": Montana 1889-1989. Here, the photographer begins with an aerial view of a site that affects one of Montana's imperiled species, and overlays each image with a sheet of glass, discreetly etched with the name of the impacted animal
