Book DescriptionThe Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch is a tract of 8,000 acres on southern Arizona's Sonoita Plain that for the last 35 years it has been treated in an extraordinary way--by leaving it alone. No grazing. No dam building. No pest control. No fire-fighting. By employing such non-action, might we gain a glimpse of what this land was like hundreds of years ago? Through essays and photographs, this book describes this land's environment, biodiversity, and human history to reveal its complex ecology and unique aesthetics.
