    Stand With The Best

    YOUR RESPONSE ?
    Montana Preserved ?
    worth your time

    -------
    .. Thanks to the sharp eyes of Riffles and Slicks we have quickly learned about an impassioned response from our neighbors to a major threat to our way of life.
    .. The threat is to our values, history, heritage, and our pride.
    .. The threat is about the theft, sale, and give away of our public lands. Local, State, or, Federal: they are ours. It's time to TAKE A STAND!
    .. Now, 40 of Montana's best loved and cherished writers have joined forces to take a stand to preserve our public lands and values.
    .. It's worth your time to see this and read it. Here is a small sample:

    "Ryan Zinke knows better, has seen the glaciers shrink with his own eyes,  but he has entered a world where pandering is the coin of the realm, serving an administration virtually at war with the natural world."  . . .  Tom McGuane

     "In Montana, our right to step into a river or stream at all depends on access. Publicly owned and managed land provides most of that access." . . .  David Brooks 

     "I don’t worry so much about losing our wilderness areas and national parks. I don’t think the takers could stand up to the fight if they tried to grab those jewels. It’s the smaller chunks of land that I fear for, the places with scars and without fame or constituency." . . .  Scott McMillion

     "Our tea among secretive
    Rocks — soak away the meanness
    Of a year’s duplicity — no one can reach
    Us here — no human noise — A river will gentle the cruelest voice" . . .  Sandra Alcosser

     "Word has reached me from a number of reliable sources, men and women who would sacrifice their lives for the right causes, that our illustrious chief executive is hatching some evil plans to sell off our birthright, that of public open spaces still pristine, to the highest bidders." . . .  Russell Chatham

     "It’s that kind of sneak attack that always gets us in the end. It’s the way they tell you what you want to hear, offer a few tokens while they’re drawing these lines behind your back. They’re clever that way, being able to create such beautiful lines. Lines you’d never think were possible." . . .  Russell Rowland
