    schema:reviewBody ""The West is America's most rapidly growing area, replete with pop-up shopping malls office parks, and cookie-cutter subdivisions. Rodeos, dude ranches, national parks, and wilderness areas now abide with sprawling cities, ritzy ski resorts, and meccas of world-class climbing, mountain biking, and fly fishing." "Atlas of the New West makes sense of this transformation with forty-six full-color, three-dimensional maps, offering a portrait of the region's cosmopolitan cities, nuclear waste sites, gold-medal trout streams, espresso bars, and working ranches. Illustrations and informative sidebars show old West battles taking new forms - who owns what land? who controls what water rights? and how much development is too much?" "Historical and analytical essays by Patricia Nelson Limerick and Charles Wilkinson take us from Vail's ski slopes and sagebrush ranches in Nevada to Santa Fe's New Age Fair. Original photographs by Peter Goin capture the region's quirky and often paradoxical images. Absorbing, beautifully designed, and often humorous, Atlas of the New West explores what the region's rapid postindustrial evolution means for its future and for the future of America."--BOOK JACKET." ;
