This is Dinosaur: Echo Park Country and its Magic Rivers

by Stagner, Wallace (ed)

Condition: Very Good

Edited by Wallace Stegner, 1st edition. Condition very good, some wear to cover. Includes foldout poster/info booklet. As this book goes to press, Dinosaur National Monument is the storm center of a controversy, fought over by those who would preserve its beauty and its National Park integrity and those who would convert the Green and Yampa canyons into a storage vessel for impunding water and creating hydroelectric power. The dams would kill most of the abundant fossils, beautiful rivers, ancient ruins, and various wildlife within Dinosaur National Park. This book attempts no more than to show what the people would be giving up, what beautiful and instructive and satisfying things their children and their grandchildren and all other Americans from then on would never get to see.
