Saving America's countryside : a guide to rural conservation by Samuel N Stokes( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since publication of the first edition of Saving America's Countryside in 1989, the fight to save America's rural resources has met with much success. Approaches considered experimental just a decade ago - greenways and heritage areas, for exampleare now widespread. Yet at the same time, such disquieting developments as continuing suburban sprawl, the weakening of federal laws, and the so-called property rights movement all suggest that work remains to be done." "Saving America's Countryside was the first and is still the only comprehensive, step-by-step guide to protecting the natural, historic, scenic, and agricultural resources of a rural community. No other book so completely addresses the range of skills and ideas available. The authors show how to organize a conservation effort, inventory available resources, pass effective new laws, set up land trusts, take advantage of federal programs, and change public attitudes." "The thoroughly revised and updated second edition reports on changes in conservation over the past eight years and adds a chapter on making economic development compatible with rural conservation. It includes new case studies, more than fifty new illustrations, and a section on heritage tourism. As in the previous edition, the detailed case studies document a variety of successful - and often surprisingly innovative - conservation efforts by residents of rural communities throughout the United States."--BOOK JACKET
