10-26-2021 Voices for the West: America’s Cold Civil War & Public Lands in the West

26th of Oct 2021

Our October Voices for the West webinar featured a conversation with author Betsy Gaines Quammen, who discussed the current polarization, divisiveness, and disinformation setting our country on a course toward on-going insurrection. Following the publication of her book, American Zion: Cliven Bundy, God & Public Lands in the West, Gaines Quammen has spent the past few years visiting communities in the West to hear perspectives from residents of these towns. She will compile these interviews in her forthcoming book, True West: Sorting Realities on the Far Side of America, in which she hopes to shed light on the growing trend of radicalization in the West.
