This book is a documentary of people--individuals, couples, families--who work and live on the American western landscape. In striking black and white images and plain spoken quotes (including personal and community anecdotes) Drummond presents a true depiction of rural life at the end of the twentieth century. Author/photographer Jill Brody interviewed Drummond ranchers about their everyday lives. What emerges is a story about a changing way of life, a difference in priorities, and a real struggle to survive all with a grace of acceptance. As a cultural historian, Brody has captured the essence of this now unique way of life in the West by simply presenting what is.
