The Center of the American West is proud to host a screening of Losing the West a documentary about small ranching and farming, exemplified by the story of a lifelong Colorado cowboy. Howard Linscott IS the original Marlboro Man, a gruff, chain-smoking 70-year-old who has been ranching all his life. With sweeping shots of the Colorado Rockies, the film explores whether cherished Western traditions and this fiercely independent lifestyle can survive as they collide with inevitable population growth in the West and its dwindling natural resources.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion between Patty Limerick and the film’s Director and Producer, Alex Warren.
