Made in USA.From the publisher: The Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah, created by President Obama in 2016 and eviscerated by the Trump administration in 2017, contains more archaeological sites than any other region in the United States. It's also a spectacularly beautiful landscape, a mosaic of sandstone canyons and bold mesas and buttes. This wilderness—now threatened by oil and gas drilling, unrestricted grazing and use of recreational off-road vehicles—is at the center of the greatest environmental battle in America since the damming of the Colorado River to create Lake Powell in the 1950s.View all W W Norton Non-Fictional Adventures
