The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and its Legacy on the Colorado Plateau
by Wayne K. Hinton and Elizabeth Green

At the height of the Great Depression, two of America's richest resources—its young men and its public lands—were in peril. As unemployed young me despaired at their prospects for earning a living for themselves and their families, choking dust storms stripped away farmland and fire ravaged the nation's forests. Only days after taking office in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt launched a new program to help save both treasures.

Within months, the Civilian Conservation Corps had put three-quarters of a million young men to work restoring forests and farmland, building infrastructure, and fighting fires in America's national public lands. Many workers were sent far from home, including thousands who came west to the Colorado Plateau. In this high, dry, and lonesome setting, they encountered natural beauty unlike anything they had ever seen, as ell as challenges they could not have imagined. With Picks, Shovels & Hope tells their story.

In Flying Home, The Colorado Plateau from Above and Below, Craig Childs is your guide as he and his pilot friend Neal Schwieterman hop from one mesa-top landing strip to another in a 1946 Cessna.

Between hawk’s-eye panoramas and on-the-ground adventures, you’ll fly directly into the heart of the Colorado Plateau in a uniquely memorable way.

Publication date: January 2018. 160 pages, 140 illustrations.

Softbound with front and back flaps. $24.95. Published by PPCA, Peaks, Plateaus and Canyons Association.

The Peaks, Plateaus and Canyons Association, nonprofit publisher of Flying Home and previously of Sojourns, chose to mark the end of that journal’s decade-long adventure with a special double issue. Happily, the involvement of Childs and imagery from some of the country’s most talented photographers allowed that farewell issue to evolve into this book now available.
