Billy Vogelin Starr returns home to his beloved New Mexico after nine months away at school only to find his grandfather in a standoff with the United States Government. It seems the government wants to take his land and turn it into an extension of the White Sands Missile Range. lthough facing the combined powers of the U.S. County Sheriff, the Department of the Interior, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the U.S. Air Force, John Vogelin stands his ground; he does this because to Vogelin, his land is his life and when backed into a corner, a tough old man like him will come out fighting. Here Abbey gives us a page turner that shows us what one determined individual can do in the face of overwhelming legal and military power as he fights to save his livelihood.

"'I am the land,' Grandfather said."
A stubborn, elderly farmer refuses to sell his land to the government who want to use it as a missile testing ground and is prepared to fight to the death. His grandson joins him and learns a few hard lessons. Will resonate both with today's environmentalists and libertarians. Also check out "The Monkey Wrench Gang" and "The
Brave Cowboy."
