Congratulations to our latest Wallace Stegner Prize Winners!

University of Utah Press announces the winner of the
Wallace Stegner Prize in Environmental Humanities:
 
Saving Wyoming’s Hoback
The Grassroots Movement That Stopped Natural Gas Development
by
Florence Rose Shepard and Susan Marsh
                                               

The University of Utah Press is pleased to announce the Wallace Stegner Prize, a $5,000 biennial award, this year to Florence Rose Shepard and Susan Marsh for Saving Wyoming’s Hoback: The Grassroots Movement That Stopped Natural Gas Development. This new book tells the inspiring story of determined citizens who worked together to protect the land that they loved. Retired schoolteachers, mine workers, big game hunters and outfitters, environmental organizations, residents, and other stakeholders combined their knowledge of the area to achieve a single goal: prevent natural gas development of the wild country that is their home, Wyoming’s Hoback. In doing so, they represented well Wallace Stegner’s description of the West as “the native home of hope,” a region where “cooperation, not rugged individualism,” is the quality that most characterizes and preserves it,” a place where citizens have “a chance to create a society to match its scenery.”
