From deserts to ghost towns, from national forests to California bungalows, many of the features of the western American landscape are well known to residents and travelers alike. But in How to Read the American West, William Wyckoff introduces readers anew to these familiar landscapes. A geographer and an accomplished photographer, Wyckoff offers a fresh perspective on the natural and human history of the American West and encourages readers to discover that history has shaped the places where people live, work, and visit. This innovative field guide includes stories, photographs, maps, and diagrams on a hundred landscape features across the American West. Features are grouped according to type, such as natural landscapes, farms and ranches, places of special cultural identity, and cities and suburbs. Unlike the geographic organization of a traditional guidebook, Wyckoff's field guide draws attention to the connections and the differences between and among places. Emphasizing features that recur from one part of the region to another, the guide takes readers on an exploration of the eleven western states with trips into their natural and cultural character. How to Read the American West is an ideal traveling companion on the main roads and byways in the West, providing unexpected insights into the landscapes you see out your car window. It is also a wonderful source for armchair travelers and people who live in the West who want to learn more about the modern West, how it came to be, and how it may change in the years to come. Showcasing the everyday alongside the exceptional, Wyckoff demonstrates how asking new questions about the landscapes of the West can let us see our surroundings more clearly, helping us make informed and thoughtful decisions about their stewardship in the twenty-first century.

"Michael Goodman is, by all accounts, just that: a good man. But he's also recently widowed, out of work, deep in debt, and unable to pay the mounting medical bills for his seriously ill daughter. So when he accidentally finds a bundle of narcotics in Florida and gets nowhere in his attempts to turn it in to the local police, he returns home to New York City with plans to convert the load to cash." "Along the way to making a fortune, Goodman and his young daughter Kelly befriend a pretty former prostitute, and together they encounter New York thugs, a host of law enforcement sleuths, and Florida drug lords who have no qualms about killing in order to recover what Goodman wants to sell. Eventually, all of the players converge in a collision that is at once harrowing and hysterically funny."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
