Summary
""Danger, ancient legends, and a legal fight for the sacred. This powerful book ... is a balanced account of the legal struggle over an important historic site-Donald L. Fixico, author of American Indians in a Modern World" ""Against all odds and historical precedents, Nevada's Washoe Tribe won the right to protect Cave Rock, a sacred cultural site, from sport climbers. This compelling tale of cultural and political persistence explains how they succeeded."--Sherry L. Smith, author of Reimagining Indians: Native Americans Through Anglo Eyes, 1880-1940" "Cave Rock recounts a lengthy dispute between the Washoe Indians, a small Nevada tribe, and a number of athletes, supported by powerful corporations, who turned a Washoe sacred place on the shore of Lake Tahoe into a world-class rock-climbing site. The book follows the legal challenges and administrative decisions that finally led to an unprecedented 2007 court ruling prohibiting sport climbing on Cave Rock."--Jacket
