Publisher's Summary

American Zion is the story of the Bundy family, famous for their armed conflicts in the West. With an antagonism that goes back to the very first Mormons who fled the Midwest for the Great Basin, they hold a sense of entitlement that confronts both law and democracy. Today their cowboy confrontations threaten public lands, wild species, and American heritage.

Good detail in the story

Very good with regard to the land use history of BLM lands in the high desert region of the west. Lots of details in describing the various roles of individuals and other entities that have shaped the American West. Honest attempts to be journalistic but adds opinions supported by scientific facts which is appreciated.

So much more than just another book about the Bundys

The depth of research put into this book is unparalleled and the incredibly important story it tells should not be missed. This book is eloquently written, extremely well read, and ever entertaining.
