Blue Mountains Far Away

PDF EBook by Gregory McNamee

EBook Description

This book of essays about the wild lands of the Southwest, their history, beauty and their future prospects is beautifully written. Blue Mountains Far Away PDF EBook Still, the version I have, copyrighted 2000, has some very dated sections, particularly American Byzantium on Las Vegas. I suspect some essays were written much earlier. Futhermore, I have a small quibble with Mr McNamee, one that I also have with several other environmentalists I have read. They advocate setting aside vast wilderness areas to stand, not only undeveloped (which I agree with) but unvisited by anyone. Anyone but themselves it seems. McNamee writes, "I know a few such places. I am happy not to visit them again, to let them go about their ancient business without me. "How generous - PDF you've already been there! After extolling the virtues and soul stretching powers of the wild areas of American wilderness, I suppose he thinks it enough for readers to experience HIS rapture through HIS writing but not to gather our own uplifting experiences. Ah well, it is a small quibble in an otherwise wonderful little book and I will ignore it. Like this book?
