With an engaging blend of tongue-in-cheek humor, wide-eyed wonder, and deeply felt regard, author Ian Frazier shares the history, geography, folklore, and local color that form what he deems the heart of the American West. He travels more than 25,000 miles across the Great Plains, visiting points of interest that include a missile silo in Montana, an abandoned house once terrorized by Bonnie and Clyde, Sitting Bull’s cabin, strip-mine sites, state parks, and more, compiling a story that’s part travelog, part history, and part intrepid western adventure. Includes 16 pages of historical and contextual photos.
