Publisher’s description: We provide in-depth, thought-provoking journalism that has been our hallmark, across a wider range of topics for 50 years—from land, water and the environment, to social and political issues unique to the West. Our aim is to inform, inspire and challenge readers to think deeply about the West, and to act on its behalf. We hope the magazine will become an essential read to any Westerner, whether they’ve lived in the region for decades or are a part of a new wave of migration. Through informed conversation, we hope to bridge divides among the West’s myriad communities and help build a West prepared for the future ahead.
