Description
 
John Hanson Mitchell. This book explores the question of how  a nation built on a vision of “wide open spaces” came to believe in the private ownership of land. Mitchell explores every variation of this important issue. From the beginning of British common law up to the most recent Supreme Court takings decisions, he follows the evolution of our attitudes toward land. Highlights include a hilarious visit to the Mitchell ancestral manor in Scotland, a brilliant panorama of the vast grid into which we carved the once unbroken Great Plains & mountains of the West, & a surreal excursion to a Native American reservation now developed into a mammoth casino.
