Just because the years altered the guy, so, too, have they altered the West, and Farmer’s moment trip gives a special point of view on those changes—as good as on what lasts. even if stuck in a Colorado storm from snow or braving a Yellowstone herd of bison, kayaking with orcas in Puget Sound, buying and selling Ninja strikes with a homeless guy in San Francisco, or getting the lowdown on extraterrestrial beings on Nevada’s Extraterrestrial road, Farmer charts a relocating panorama of individuals and areas. this is often the West the place the wildlife and private personality are inextricably associated, and the place one man’s experience into the prior and current takes us to the center of that ever-evolving connection.
