With their words alone, they seek to influence the Obama administration and Congress to protect America's public lands.This isn't your standard Congressional testimony filled with bureaucratese, graphs, and charts. This self-published limited edition booklet gathers impassioned "testimony" from prominent American writers whose backgrounds bridge generations and geography, race and culture. They speak to the threats and the wonders, and, especially, to the threat posed by Representatives Rob Bishop's and Jason Chaffetz's Public Lands Initiative and the wondrous importance of protecting the proposed Bears Ears National Monument.The book begins with an introduction by Charles Wilkinson, the foremost writer/scholar on public lands and Indian law. Contributors include current Navajo Poet Laureate Luci Tapahonso and Utah's first poet laureate David Lee; MacArthur Fellow Gary Paul Nabhan and writer-philosopher Kathleen Dean Moore; former Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt and former Utah state archaeologist Kevin Jones; Millennial essayists Anne Terashima and Brooke Larsen; Ute Mountain Ute tribal councilwoman Regina LopezWhiteskunk; former members of Congress Mark Udall and Karen Shepherd; bestselling essayists David Gessner and Lauret Savoy; recent Utah Bureau of Land Management Director Juan Palma; and award-winning writer-scholars who teach at universities from North Carolina to Arizona.These writers explore the fierce beauty and the dangers to ecological and archaeological integrity that define the issues in this politically embattled corner of our country. The writers and designer of Red Rock Testimony donated their work for this chapbook, with printing funded by individual contributions from Utah citizens. Just 1500 copies were printed."
