Humans Important to Nature?
Dan Daggets classic book on how ranchers and environmentalists on the Western Range can work together to achieve common goals was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and is in its third printing, but its still hard to get.
If you're interested in the future of the American West; in the health of its ecosystems, its open space, and its endangered species; or if you're interested in what we can do about those thingsabout environmental restoration, collaborative management, conflict resolution, functional ecosystems, healthy grasslands, or the power of shared visionthis book by an environmental activist about ten ranchers, from Mexico to Montana, who decided to work with environmentalists rather than fight against them is must reading.
Wendell Berry, one of America's most respected environmental writers could hardly have spoken more highly of Dagget's bookBeyond the Rangeland Conflict: Toward a West That Works, "I read this book eagerly, recognizing it as something I have been waiting for, and it gave me hope."
Hugh Sidey, contributing editor of Time magazine has said, Wisdom is a rare commodity in this difficult world, but you seem to have found a vein of it.
Gary Paul Nabhan, PhD, Science Advisor, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, author of Gathering the Desert said, "Dan Dagget has done us all a grand favor by exploding the false dichotomies of 'user' versus 'conservator' and 'rancher' versus 'environmentalist.' ...Beyond the Rangeland Conflict is an essential loom we'll need if we are to reweave human communities back into the larger fabric of life in the Intermountain West."
Dan has made more than a hundred presentations around the West about the proactive, collaborative eco-effective EcoResults! approach!. Here are some responses to those presentations:
"Dan's presentations help all sides of the "grazing debate" see opportunities for collaboration and progress - he helps people to think creatively and proactively." Dan Macon, California Rangeland Trust
Not only did your talk open eyes and challenge both sides to listen to each other with respect, but you were also one of the most professional of all the participants. ...if I ever get the chance to organize another conferenceIll call you first. Barbara Nelson, Conference Co-organizer: North American Interdisciplinary Wilderness Conference.
At a conference where Dans presentation was combined with a field trip to a number of the restorations illustrated in his slide show, the conference organizer was told, You not only changed my mind, you changed my life.
Dans presentations include a dynamite slide show and a talk tailored specifically for your community, its issues, and its goals.
