Montana's fabled Blackfoot River, immortalized in Norman McLean's A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, serves as the backdrop--and microcosm--for Richard Manning's latest examination of the social, political, and environmental threats to America's West. In his usual lyrical and impassioned prose, Manning explores the impact of mining, development, and adventure tourism not just on this river, but on an entire way of life.
