17 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Robert R. Marble on May 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
As an ex cattle rancher who spent way too much time (as did my employees) trying to get similar ideas across to the BLM I find this book to be incredibly refreshing. Ranchers, environmentalists and government range managers should be required to read this book. Daggett is to be commended for having the guts to take on this monumental change in attitude amongst all those named above and he's proved his point. Ranchers need to face the fact that they can change their ways for the betterment of all and evironmentalits and government range managers need to open their eyes to the fact that we are never again going to have the rangelands we had 200 years ago. But, with this approach, we can have the best of both worlds for the range, the ranchers and the public. We can also redirect the incredible amount of time, money and effort that is wasted on the wars between all involved to more productive, peaceful and productive pursuits.

Few livestock producers are so successful as the top 10 land stewards chosen for this book:
Regardless of how much a rancher may love, respect and depend on healthy range conditions, most of them simply do not have the knowledge, talent, or resources to gain an above average review from environmentalists, BLM, Forest Service, Fish and Game et al.

Soon as I began reading this book in May of 2014, I realized a monumental need for a follow up Volume II.

When this book was written, environmental study courses offered in classrooms were a small fraction of what they are today. Young people have now been indoctrinated to realize that with the help of government aid - after hustling around for private funding has proven difficult if not discouraging - they may actually be able to build a sustainable career in subsidized environmentalism!? There are an abundance of start up green groups and satellites of the well established Big Green groups sprouting up across the country and they are hungry, but not for meat; vegan enviro-activists are being fashioned at a much faster rate than are ranch managers and cowhands who have gained a mastery of wise-land usage. This new breed of environmentalist has global warming on the brain, reinforced with access to data and institutional clout that make it easier to receive funding towards the ultimate goal of reducing livestock producers to a collective class of peasantry - raising only enough animals to make milk for non-soy lattes, "necessary beef byproducts" and organically grown free range dog and cat food.

It's so refreshing to read about ranchers who are solving problems, overcoming environmental challenges, and managing the land in an admirable way. The real people Dagget visits are thoughtful, practical, and optimistic. They've figured out ways to make ranching a win-win operation that enriches the land as it goes. Hopefully, these people will set new standards for a sustainable future. For sure the land will be better for their stewardship.
