Itizens generous roaming rights to their countries' green spacesInspired by the United States' history of roaming and taking guidance from present day Europe Ilgunas calls into uestion our entrenched understanding of private property and provocatively proposes something unheard of opening up American private property for public recreation He imagines a future in which folks everywhere will have the right to walk safely explore freely and roam boldly from California to the New York island from the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters I had uestions at first but those uestions mostly fell by the wayside as I went further into this American book about the right to roam or in the better but less catchy Scottish version the right of responsible access what it means how it has been applied in other countries and in early America the law in the US and what it might take to give Americans the right to roam especially locally and at the state level My biggest problem with the book is how it downplays insurance Ilgunas deals with insurance only at page 175 far too late because a lot of what he describes derives from fears of being sued even if they are in many ways exaggerated

Private property is everywhere Is Our Epub #223 Almost anywhere you walk in the United States you will spot No Trespassing and Private Property signs on trees and fence posts In America there are than a billion acres of grassland pasture cropland and forest and miles and miles of coastlines that are mostly closed off to the public Meanwhile America's public This Land Kindle lands are threatened by extremist groups and right wing think tanks who call for our public lands to be sold to the highest bidder and closed off to everyone else I Interesting book covers many sides of the right to roam argument and ramifications well I feel much better informed But I do have some advice Mr Ilgunas You need a brand A graphic A logo Something that grassroots Americans can put on t shirts and plaster on social media I went to the web and tried to look up a sign that I could buy to post on my property we two thirty somethings with five kids own 43 acres 14 of which are pretty wild woods but I couldn t find anything I want a sign that says Respectful people may roam here or Responsible citizens may roam here with the ROAM HERE part being larger than the rest We could put up a sign with a garbage can next to it and empty the bag occasionally when it gets full And people could enjoy the woods and creek But I m horrible at sign painting and graphic design But if politicians start to see the brand and people start putting up signs and letting people onto their land then things could change right Popular opinion sometimes needs a logo behind which to rally Any of my familyfriends that actually read my reviews may come and roam whenever you want You know all three of you that live nowhere near me Haha But you should all be informed that cow tipping is not a real thing so don t even think about it Peace

    Interesting book covers many sides of the “right to roam” argument and ramifications well I feel much better informed But I do have some advice Mr Ilgunas You need a brand A graphic A logo Something that grassroots Americans can put on t shirts and plaster on social media I went to the web and tried to look up a sign that I could buy to post on my property we two thirty somethings with five kids own 43 acres 14 of which are

    I thought I knew a lot about the policy and law of the outdoor world in the United States but this book was a game changer Although it was definitely entertaining it still took me a while to get through this book especially conside

    A thoughtful and informative argument for the idea that Americans should have the freedom to roam our own lands I like these ideas very much though sadly I suspect the author will have an impossibly difficult struggle seeing them to fruition given the current political climate Regardless an interesting read

    I read a lot of walking books and this is one of the good ones I wish Americans could buy into this idea but I get depressed considering the reach it would reuire As Ilgunas writes toward the end of the book Only a society that walks will fight for the right to walk I don't think the United States is anywhere near thatI recently cut through Glacier Park as the uickest route from the east side of it to the west side Tra

    I enjoyed his memoirs travel narratives Walden on Wheels and Trespassing Across America than this one I can't think of another book length argument I've read recently so I'm uncertain of what I should have expected As has been stated by at least one other reviewer it is hard to imagine implementation of a right to roam in America today or in

    Ken Ilgunas' first two books—the pioneering #vanlife memoir WALDEN ON WHEELS and epic Keystone pipeline travelogue TRESPASSING ACROSS AMERICA—elevated the act of veering out of bounds into an art making him a man after my own heart His new book THIS LAND IS OUR LAND elegantly builds on this theme with a passionate and persuasive ode to r

    Interesting idea here that we should be able to walk on anyone's private property I can't imagine it happening and to be honest I don't really want the neighbors in the back yard I had no idea British and Scandinavian countries had a right to roam meaning that within certain restrictions people can walk wherever they want including
