This week’s Heartlanders are Jeffrey Lee, Ann Martin and their co-conspirators. Mr. Lee and Ms. Martin have over the years collected over 25,000 books on land and the relationship of people to land. They have been working for years to create permanent repositories for their collection, planned for a rural area outside of Denver owned by public entities as well as an urban location. Some books have already been placed in a children’s library.
Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.–Margaret Mead
