Authors McKinney and Harmon look at the West’s endless tug-of-wars over water, land use, fire management and wildlife — issues, they say, best resolved through collaboration, negotiation, or consensus. That’s not easy, given the sturdy independence of Westerners and their broad range of values and viewpoints. The book moves beyond simply suggesting we "share the sandbox": It provides practical strategies for resolving disputes.
