Salt Lake City, UT – In "Bargaining for Eden," author Stephen Trimble can be tough in his assessment of how billionaire Earl Holding acquired public land for a ski resort and made a deal to host the 2002 Winter Olympics there. But Trimble's own environmental philosophy was put to the test when he became a landowner and developer himself. On Wednesday, Doug talks with Trimble about the complicated tensions between owning land and building on it, and what it means for America's Western landscape.
