I selected this book for its breadth of scope. That is, it develops case studies from around the U.S., addresses indigenous values in addition to government-imposed (i.e., top-down) strategies, has a section devoted entirely to Yellowstone, and even delves into international perspectives and approaches to wilderness and conservation. Can't wait to dive into it, and am confident I'll find useful teaching resources here.
