Paper instructions: Read: Joseph L. Sax, Mountains Without Handrails, Reflections on the National Parks Robert Keller, “Lac La Croix: Rumor, Rhetoric and Reality in Indian Affairs” Sax argues that the purpose of parks is ultimately spiritual and that they should not be compromised by commercialization and paternalism. This book was published more than 40 years ago. Is it still relevant? Write a response as in Lesson One. Joseph Sax died in the spring of 2014. Consider: In April, 1998, a party of six backpacked five days in the Grand Canyon. Park entrance and trail fees came to nearly $150. Given Sax’s conclusions, can this be justified? Does a user fee policy have an implicit racial and economic bias, and is any such bias new, or does it continue the reality of the past? Also read the article on Lac La Croix in the syllabus. How do you compare this viewpoint with Sax’s? What, if any, dilemmas in park management do you find? How would Sax resolve them? Do you think Canada differs from the U.S. in this regard? Should we and Canada exempt native people from conservation regulations? What were the competing values in this controversy? How would you resolve the dispute? What did you learn about Dr. Keller? Writing, grammar, and spelling will be evaluated as well as content. Rough drafts should be complete and spell-checked. Papers must be typed and double spaced. Sources of information must be cited. You can assume I have read any assigned book and need not be informed of its contents. I do, however, require evidence that you have read the book. This is best done by being specific in illustrating your points. A good book review answers questions: Is the book clearly written? What are the authors’ attitudes, biases, assumptions, purpose, and style? The major theses, interpretations, and conclusions? What new material/information did you learn about parks? Where did you agree or disagree? Why? How does the book compare with your previous knowledge? How well is the book documented? Does the author consider conflicting evidence, and do so fairly? Did the reading change your mind about national parks, the NPS, or how we can (or should we?) protect and preserve natural reserves? For whom is the book written? To whom would you recommend it? Does the publisher help readers by printing, maps, charts, photos, source notes? A good book review is a trialogue between you, the author, and me.

Joseph L. Sax’s book “Mountains Without Handrails” was published more than 40 years ago. Despite that fact, its position and assumptions on how nature should be interacted with are still relevant today. The reason it is relevant in contemporary times is that many people, just like those from 40 years ago, still fail to understand nature’s essence and how to appreciate what it has to offer fully. It could be because we are heavily dependent on gadgets and machinery that we forget to acknowledge nature’s bounty and end up destroying it so that we can create more illusions of comfort or artificial environment. Today, we are more inclined to have a gym subscription than go for a walk in the park; we prefer staring at a screen all day rather than watch the sunset at the beach. These supposedly unnatural preferences prevent us from fully appreciating nature, and the book remains relevant to remind us of how we should behave and act as part of the natural environment.

Given Sax’s conclusion, making a group of individuals pay for a backpacking exercise cannot be justified. The group of six who backpacked for five days in the Grand Canyon back in 1998 were making a deliberate effort to appreciate nature the right way since they did not have any motorized vehicles and had opted to use the trails. By requiring them to pay any fee for the opportunity to explore, the society demonstrated a lack of understanding for nature’s real purpose and instead showed insatiable greed by commercializing a commodity that does not need to be commercialized. Further, they dampened the spirits of other potential recreationists who might have had the will to explore but lacked the financial commitment to facilitate their passion.

A user fee policy on natural parks and locations across the world most definitely has an implicit racial and economic bias. Racial bias, for instance, would arise in a situation where a particular race in a country like America pays to use a park that is situated in an area predominantly occupied by said race. It would be unfair to other races who would like to use the same park but find it geographically challenging given that they will have to incur both traveling and entry costs. Besides that, it would not be considered fair since the government would require both parties to fulfill their tax obligations on an equal platform. If members of the public use the park or recreational location by members of the public, it would be economic bias to impose user fees since there wouldn’t be any maintenance fees incurred by the managerial body. According to Sax, managers at national parks should do their job while aiming to preserve animal and plant life without interfering in any way (Sax, 1980). This means that the park management does not spend any amount of money maintaining the park and as a result, should not demand any fee from users of the park as it is considered economic bias. Such bias is not a new concept but rather a reality that we have lived with for decades.

Keller’s viewpoint on regulations in parks differs from Sax’s in that Keller takes an environmental preservation approach that discourages pollution and degradation from human activities whereas Sax advocates for complete restraint from physical interference. In other words, Sax wants us to appreciate nature and let it remain in its original form while Keller intends to protect it from human activities that cause damage like dumping waste from a coal-fired plant into a lake. One dilemma in park management is the requirement to preserve by not interfering when, to preserve, they have to interfere. Sax could resolve this dilemma by leaning towards preservationists and depending on their unbiased innate motivation to work towards protecting the environment without any apparent monetary incentives.

I do not think Canada and the U.S. differ in this matter since they have demonstrated to be actively preventing environmental degradation by creating regulations through legislation to protect lakes and keep them as pristine as possible. Further, America followed Canada’s lead in halting logging activities that were detrimental to the environment (Keller, 1988). America and Canada should not exempt native people from conservation regulations because, without regulations, any population whether native or non-native can overexploit natural resources and damage the environment irreparably in the process. Regulations are necessary to keep them in control just like everyone else.

The competing values in the regulations controversy lay in the fact that the natives had an ancestral connection to the land they occupied and therefore perceived the land and all its natural resources as theirs by right. Non-natives, on the other hand, felt that being a native was not a valid enough reason to be exempted from conservation regulations. I would resolve the dispute by imposing rules on all parties regardless of status or origin. This act would have minimal implications, and affected parties would come to terms with the changes within a short period. From his works, Dr. Keller presents himself as someone with a passion for the environment and the commitment to preserve. This sentiment is informed by the meticulous work put into compiling reliable information for his book.
