With eight full page Maynard Dixon illustrations. "No painter has ever quite understood the light, the distances, the aboriginal ghostliness of the American West as well as Maynard Dixon," says Thomas McGuane. "The great mood of his work is solitude, the effect of land and space on people. While his work stands perfectly well on its claim to beauty, it offers a spiritual view of the West, indispensable to anyone who would understand it."
