I’ve wrestled about whether or not to publish this video, but as a journalist, I believe that all sides of a story should be told. So, you be the judge. This was filmed at a public event (Superintendent Mary Martin’s retirement from the Mojave Preserve) with government employees (most from the Park Service) so permission is not needed to publish.
Since 2002, I’ve been traveling the United States of America interviewing people, primarily ranchers and farmers, about their lives, their land, their families. It started out being a film about cowboy poetry, but soon morphed into something else as I learned how difficult it has been for them to keep their businesses alive and prosperous. These interviews are being posted here unedited, just as they were recorded, so you can listen and formulate your own opinion about what is happening in this country. Please come here with love in your heart and a generous spirit. We welcome you!
