A thoughtful celebration of the Highlands of Scotland, both its people, including visitors who love the area, and its nature, Land for What? Land for Whom? is based on years of detailed ethnographic research in the Cairngorms. Exploring the many and varied conflicts between livelihood, recreation and conservation, Bonnie VandeSteeg expresses the views, concerns and feelings of people in the area, particularly those who often go unheard. She places them at the front of her study and considers how their differences might be overcome to ensure the future well-being of both people and planet.
