Features

About the Book:

This book examines the ideal of wilderness preservation in the United States from the antebellum era to the first half of the twentieth century, showing how the early conception of the wilderness as the place where Indians lived (or should live) gave way to the idealization of uninhabited wilderness. It focuses on specific policies of Indian removal developed at Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Glacier national parks from the early 1870s to the 1930s.

About Canaan Vallejos:

Canaan was born in Northern New Mexico and was raised in Southern Colorado where he fell in love with the high country. He moved to the Tahoe area in late 2019 to work at Alpenglow Sports.

Why Canaan Chose This Book:

This book shares a candid history of the United States and its National Parks Service. I hope this read provides a fresh perspective for all of us the next time we enter one of our National Parks.
