“On Common Ground: Hal Herring” (2018)

"On Common Ground: Hal Herring" (2018) Growing up in rural Alabama, Hal Herring knew every inch of land accessible to the public. The only problem was, there wasn’t much of it. When he discovered the national forests of Montana as a teenager, he decided to move there to live on the grand scale only possible in the American West. Our public lands are the foundation of his patriotism—an inheritance he considers more important to our shared future than the Declaration of Independence or the Bill of Rights. On Common Ground tells the authentic stories of individuals whose lives have been shaped by our public lands. Taken together, these stories remind us of all that we stand to lose if we sell, pollute, privatize or otherwise destroy the literal common ground we share as Americans. As go our public lands, so goes our democracy. Today, both stand imperiled.
