Summary

Grand Canyon for Sale, by journalist Stephen Nash, is a wake-up call for anyone who cares about public lands, especially the U.S. national parks. In carefully reported detail, Nash de­scribes the numerous threats faced by federally managed lands from organizations with various economic interests. Others have posed similar warnings, but Nash provides urgency to the argument by documenting how such threats are enhanced by climate change and may be aggravated by the appar­ent intentions of the Trump Administration.
