Walking Away from the Land

by Jonathan Stewart (Author)

Walking Away from the Land focuses on the rapid cultural and climatic changes occurring at the crest of the North American continent. They are challenging the survival of our forests, grasslands, native wildlife, and our very civilization. This book details a three-summer Odyssey hiking the length of the Continental Divide Trail from the Canadian Rockies to the Mexican border. It focuses on the regions cultural and natural history, while using the authors personal history as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal and as an Oregon forester to underline the dangers we face as an increasingly urbanized society.
