Reclaimers

 
9780295995137: Reclaimers

For most of the past century, Humbug Valley, a forest-hemmed meadow sacred to the Mountain Maidu tribe, was in the grip of a utility company. Washington's White Salmon River was saddled with a fish-obstructing, inefficient dam, and the Timbisha Shoshone Homeland was unacknowledged within the boundaries of Death Valley National Park.

Until people decided to reclaim them.

In Reclaimers, Ana Maria Spagna drives an aging Buick up and down the long strip of West Coast mountain ranges―the Panamints, the Sierras, the Cascades―and alongside rivers to meet the people, many of them wise women, who persevered for decades with little hope of success to make changes happen. In uncovering their heroic stories, Spagna seeks a way for herself, and for all of us, to take back and to make right in a time of unsettling ecological change.

Review:

Spagna's enthusiasm for their dedication and causes is irresistible. Such struggles are the real deal, after all, and what reader wouldn't cheer on these tenacious underdogs trying to remedy past damage? We're blessed with opportunities to make a difference, the writing shows...The lessons of her journeys, those readers can glean from these pages, are 'Do what you can. Hope without hope. Expect the unexpected.--Irene Wanner"Seattle Times" (01/01/2015)
