This is a book of fifty photographs of the North American West. As the title implies, very often images of the west leads one to wax almost poetic in describing what they have seen. By now visual attraction of the west almost borders on legend.
These are B&W photographs done purposely to get around the problem of color getting in the way of describing the significance of the scene.
Here the B&W photograph is employed as the ultimate abstraction in describing a definitive reality.
