Praise For Canaries on the Rim: Living Downwind in the West (Haymarket Series)…
“This book is a must read. For the beauty of the nature writing, for the humor, the intelligence, and the details on a community organization becoming a national power ... The experiences of Chip Ward need a series of books detailing his successes and failures. We could all learn from him.”—Sierra Club
“This call to clipboards for local activism is both hopeful and damning: a gift to the next generation and a warning that, in the end, there is no upwind.”—Publishers Weekly
