Publisher Description:
Covering the United States from coast to coast and beyond, photographer and writer Stephen Gorman has followed the footsteps of some of America's most historic and intrepid trekkers. The result is a stunning visual travelogue-- complete with unsurpassed color photography, maps, and rich, detailed descriptions-- that showcases the American outback in all its extremes and reminds readers of the enduring relationships connecting people to the land. An appendix with practical travel information invites readers to rediscover the American wilderness for themselves. Gorman's engaging text and photography are eloquently introduced by fellow outdoorsman and writer David Quammen, who thoughtfully examines America's renewed rapport with nature at the turn of the millennium.
