Matt Crawford speaks with authors Greg Glasgow and Kathyrn Mayer about their book: Disneyland on The Mountain: Walt, The Environmentalists, and the Ski Resort That Never Was. We all know the name Disney as a behemoth of a company and landowner, but in the 1960's this was far from being a given. How Walt Disney's desire to turn Mineral King in southern California into a skiing mecca, spurred an environmental momevent is truly fascinating. The outcome of this story has implications in how we protect our nations land today and the way in which Disney builds implements lessons learned from this fight to this day.
