A Wild Ride Through Land Use, Politics, and Art in the Changing WestBook - 2014
Lucy R. Lippard from her own lived experience in a New Mexico village and inspired by gravel pits in the landscape, Lippard weaves a number of fascinating themes among them fracking, mining, land art, adobe buildings, ruins, Indian land rights, the Old West, tourism, photography, and water into a tapestry that illuminates the relationship between culture and the land. From threatened Native American sacred sites to the history of uranium mining, she offers a skeptical examination of the subterranean economy.
