Support Thrifty Journalists

Author, Jonathan Thompson

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!

To the readers of High Country News,

The American West has been an integral part of my life, and my heart, for all of my days.  If, like me, you care about the West, and care about preserving both a way of life that still matters to the soul of our nation -- as well as some of the last great places on earth -- then you owe High Country News a debt of gratitude. Their work is more important now, than ever. High Country News is a great investment.  Please do what you can to support them today with your tax-deductible gift.
