Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday, Doug talks to author and conservationist Amy Irvine. She's just published a new book called Trespass: Living on the Edge of the Promised Land. It's a memoir of Irvine's move to the desert in the wake of her father's suicide and the struggle to find her place in the rural, conservative community. It's also an elegy though - to the rugged landscape of the Colorado Plateau and to our dwindling connection to the land.
