One Planet: The Threats To America's Public Lands

Sep 9, 2019


  On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll speak with investigative journalist Christopher Ketcham about his new book This Land: How Cowboys, Capitalism, and Corruption are Ruining the American West.

 

Ketcham investigates how government agencies entrusted to oversee millions of square miles of public land throughout the West are failing us, and private interests that want the land for profit have planted their teeth in the government.
