The American West still invokes images of untamed, vast landscapes stretching for miles. Author and journalist Christopher Ketcham joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how the American West is actually slipping away, in no small part due to lax federal protections and commercialization harming fragile ecosystems. His new book is called “This Land: How Cowboys, Capitalism, and Corruption are Ruining the American West” (Viking).
