frontier life

I have no illusions about how the West was won. As a child of the Great Depression it was all very glamorous. Now? I just see a lot of bad behavior toward women, toward all ethnic groups... and it turns out that the cattle we introduced also destroyed the wild prairies, and are leaving one helluva carbon footprint. The important thing about it all is to fix what we can as soon as we can, and for as long as we have to.
