Paperback. Softcover 2000 Griffin. Superclean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Only light shelfwear. 272 pages. Language: English. 'Wetmore, founder of Big Sky Journal, and Jones, its editor, have thoughtfully and affectionately selected some of the best stories and essays written about the American West for this collection. These pieces evoke a feeling of place that permeates the reader's senses. The West is seen in a variety of ways: to William Kittredge, it is a candy-apple kingdom as well as a place to hike, fish, be alone, and be with people. It is, as Ralph Beers quotes Edward Abbey, the most beautiful place on Earth. The personal reflections of each author create a moving vision of a part of America that is much traveled, studied, photographed, and, in this collection, loved.'--Cynde Bloom Lahey, Library Journal, 1998.
