About the Book
Sometimes a simple road trip can make all the difference in one's perspective. Elizabeth and Robert Troup illustrate and comment on how it feels to "get away" on the road. Through the canyons of southern Utah, in old time "cowboy motels," and out on the trail they distill the bounty that this area of premiere, world-class scenery and adventure holds. Grainy black and white photos along with inventive photo montages feature the rich landscapes and interesting folks of this amazing country. Come along for the ride and get inspired!
Robert Troup (Dogstarman) is elated to have been invited to join the rest of you on this planet Earth. He loves to dismantle and analyze the essence of things through his cameras (while adding that certain artistic "Je ne sais quois") to create original and compelling works of art. His forte is to photograph people (mostly) and despite his fourth grade teacher Miss Mcdonald's best efforts, he can't seem to suppress his appetite for adventure and desire to drink in life to its fullest. He lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and best friend Elizabeth, their daughter Grace and an ever swirling array of Border Collies.
