John Thistle is a research associate in the Labrador Institute at Memorial University.


The ranchers who resettled British Columbia's interior in the late 19th and early 20th centuries depended on grassland for their cattle, but in this they faced some unlikely competition from grasshoppers and wild horses. With the help of the government, settlers resolved to rid the range of both. Resettling the Range explores the ecology and history of the grassland and the people who lived there by looking closely at these eradication efforts, in the process uncovering in the claims of "range improvement" and "rational land use" more complicated stories of dispossession and marginalization.
