I met Courtney White through his books only to find out he was a neighbor. After reaching out and meeting Courtney, and doing an hour-long interview, I knew that at some point in my life I would attempt to collaborate with him in some way. Alas, we have AG23 Issue Two. Mr. White is many things including photographer, writer, speaker, and founder of Quivira Coalition but he is also someone living a life revolving around words like conservation, hope, nature, collaboration, and land. One of the few people I know who was able to put ranchers and conservationists in the same room and live to tell about it. Courtney personifies our mission statement. Promote understanding through dialogue and art. Which is why he is here.
