A Garden of Bristlecones - Tales of Change in the Great Basin by Michael P. Cohen.
Author, Michael P. Cohen, shows that "changes in the way bristlecone pine has been regarded during the last 150 years are a reflection of the changing view that Americans held of the West as it was explored, pioneered, exploited and then protected." - Peter Wigand, Desert Research Institute
"The book is about people as much as it is about trees. It is about the way that culture influences our view of nature. . .The bristlecone becomes a site where interests collide, where language is contested, and where reality and history are rewritten."- Cheryll Glotfelty, co-editor of The Ecocriticism Reader
