In this first person narrative, never before recorded as an audio book, Lummis describes the invasion of the West by investors, forcing out small miners and ranchers. He sees the last of the buffalo, is nearly murdered by prisoners, visits the Southwest Indian pueblos before there were highways, befriends a dog who goes mad, performs self surgery while alone in the wild, is nearly frozen in a blizzard and meets the great colorful characters of the American West.

What a Trek. What a Tramp.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this audiobooks to friends who live in the Southwest. Lummis' descriptions riveted me because I have driven through or flown over this region without knowing its history. Lummis' trek across the continent is an adventure unlike anything I have read before.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was Lummis himself. He wrote during his journey. He took chances which many of us would not have taken. He was in the right place at the right time to see people, places, and customs before they changed in the twentieth century. He was a great promoter of the Southwest and the Native Americans who lived there. Although he passed away nearly a century ago, I feel like I am sitting by his fire as he tells be his tales.
