This Land Is Our Land

Private property is everywhere Almost anywhere you walk in the United States you will spot No Trespassing and Private Property signs on trees and fence posts In America there are than a billion acres of grassland pasture cropland and forest and miles and miles of coastlines that are mostly closed off to the public Meanwhile America's public lands are threatened by extremist groups and right wing think tanks who call for our public lands to be sold to the highest bidder and closed off to everyone else If these groups g. I thought I knew a lot about the policy and law of the outdoor world in the United States but this book was a game changer Although it was definitely entertaining it still took me a while to get through this book especially considering it was only a bit over 200 pages But I m so very glad that I stuck it out and finished reading this book I ve read a lot of books about the outdoors in the past two years but I think I learned the most from this one I d like to expand just for a moment on one of the ideas that Ilgunas does not touch upon That would be the idea that the right to roam or the right of responsible access would increase awareness of global warming and climate change Awareness is already becoming heavily increased through social media sites such as Twitter and I

Aming rights to their countries' green spacesInspired by the United States' history of roaming and taking guidance from present day Europe Ilgunas calls into uestion our entrenched understanding of private property and provocatively proposes something unheard of opening up American private property for public recreation He imagines a future in which folks everywhere will have the right to walk safely explore freely and roam boldly from California to the New York island from the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters. I had uestions at first but those uestions mostly fell by the wayside as I went further into this American book about the right to roam or in the better but less catchy Scottish version the right of responsible access what it means how it has been applied in other countries and in early America the law in the US and what it might take to give Americans the right to roam especially locally and at the state level My biggest problem with the book is how it downplays insurance Ilgunas deals with insurance only at page 175 far too late because a lot of what he describes derives from fears of being sued even if they are in many ways exaggerated

    I read a lot of walking books and this is one of the good ones I wish Americans could buy into this idea but I get depressed considering the reach it would reuire As Ilgunas writes toward the end of the book Only a society that walks will fight for the right to walk I don't think the United States is anywhere n
