Because It Is So Beautiful

August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

free

Robert Leonard Reid will be talking about his book Because It Is So Beautiful: Unraveling the Mystique of the American West

Taking its title from an affecting speech given by renowned author Barry Lopez, Because It Is So Beautiful is a response to desperate questions surrounding the protection and preservation of America’s wildlands. Lopez asserted that wilderness activists will never achieve the success they seek until they can testify before legislators that a certain river or mountain must be saved–not because of its economic importance or its recreational, historical, or scientific value, but because it is so beautiful.
Ranging in their settings from eastern New Mexico to northern Alaska, Reid’s essays illustrate, often in poetic turns of prose, his belief that the American West is worth celebrating and caring for. Above all, because it is so beautiful.
