|Summary, etc.:|| Many of the men and women doing today's most consequential environmental work restoring America s grasslands, wildlife, soil, rivers, wetlands, and oceans would not call themselves environmentalists; they would be too uneasy with the connotations of that word. What drives them is their deep love of the land: the iconic terrain where explorers and cowboys, pioneers and riverboat captains forged the American identity. They feel a moral responsibility to preserve this heritage and natural wealth, to ensure that their families and communities will continue to thrive. Unfolding as a journey down the Mississippi River, "Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman" tells the stories of five representatives of this stewardship movement: a Montana rancher, a Kansas farmer, a Mississippi riverman, a Louisiana shrimper, and a Gulf fisherman. In exploring their work and family histories and the essential geographies they protect, "Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman" challenges pervasive and powerful myths about American and environmental values.
