In 2016, a group of armed, divinely inspired right-wing protestors led by Ammon Bundy occupied Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, insisting that the Federal government had no right to own public land. A divided America saw these occupiers as either dangerous extremists dressed up as cowboys, or as heroes insisting on restoring the rule of the Constitution. Avoiding cliches and easy assessments, Anthony McCann delves deeply into this story, profiling the Bundy family while introducing the huge cast of Native American tribal leaders, militia members, environmentalists, federal defense attorneys, and Black Lives Matter activists—each contending with the meaning of the American promise of Liberty.
