Peaks, Politics, and Passion: Grand Teton National Park Comes of Age

Grand Teton Association has published a new book about the histroy of Grand Teton National Park by Robert Righter. Righter's new book, Peaks, Politics and Passion: Grand Teton National Park Comes of Age follows the development of the park since its creation in 1950. The book discusses such topics as grazing policy, cultural resources, wildlife, education, the growth of the airport, and the on-going debate of what activities are proper in the park and what are not. In his talk he will focus on the airport controversy as well as the effort to divest the park of private lands.
