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.
