Sage Spirit Giveaway

Enter for a chance to win Dave Showalter’s “Sage Spirit: The American West at a Crossroads” book, published July 3, 2015 by Mountaineers Books.  Retail value: $24.95

In “Sage Spirit”, photographer Dave Showalter’s images carry you through vast terrain and his short essays profile Westerners who are working hard to preserve both their unique way of life and the natural character of the land they love.  This book takes you on a deep and comprehensive tour of sagebrush country, covering the history of the frontier and outlining a vision for the future of the American West; one where our need for energy is balanced with our need for connected wildlife corridors. Here’s how it works:

1. Visit the National Audubon Society Facebook page on July 15 and leave a comment that states your favorite thing about the Greater Sage-grouse.  Just one comment per person, please.

2. Audubon will select two random commenters to win a copy of the book.

It’s that easy!
