This was a challenging read for me. The author, Anthony McCann, takes the reader through the Bundy family’s philosophy, theology, and mindset from the Nevada ranch standoff to the dismissal of the case against Cliven. Being an Oregonian, I had followed most of this in the news. The story of Ammon’s incarceration in a CoreCivic private prison and the protest about it had somehow escaped me. What is the history of public lands in the west? What does the Constitution say? What did the writers of it mean at the time? What do the Native peoples who had their lands taken from them think about this?
One quibble I have is that McCann writes as though High Desert Partnership was the first such organization of stakeholders to work together on the management of public lands. I am aware of a number of such partnerships in the Northwest that go back at least several decades.
The best takeaway is an historian saying never settle into one point of view.
