Support Thrifty Journalists
My colleagues and I travel the West on skimpy budgets, stay in sketchy motels and spend a lot of lonely hours behind the wheel, tracking down sources or tracing the paths of pipelines or power lines. Yet we would never even get out the front door without your support.
Please help us continue this vital reporting with your donation today!
Senior Editor High Country News
Tom Bell didn’t found High Country News on a shoestring. To Tom, back in 1970 or 1971 or 1972, a shoestring would have been luxury.
Tom had something better than start-up capital. He had a vision of the West that demolished such flimsy constructs as county and state and federal land boundaries. Tom’s High Country News wiped out those straight-line boundaries so that we could see a 1 million-square-mile landscape that is among the most extraordinary on earth.
