A literary journey to America's frontier inspired by a real-life hiking trip he took with his friends George Saunders and Jeff Tweedy, Nick Offerman's new narrative exploration of nature and the outdoors celebrates the people and stories, both historically and today, that have made our country great-and, working together, will keep it that way.
Nick Offerman has always loved the United States of America-not just the people and the history, but the actual land itself. In his new book, Nick takes a humorous, inspiring, and fascinating trip to America's frontier to celebrate the people, landscape, and stories, both historically and today, that have made it great-and, working together, will keep it that way.
In July 2019, Nick took a hiking trip to Glacier National Park with his friends Jeff Tweedy and George Saunders. The trip, and the conversations between the three men, began a study and exploration of both the American West and our National Parks that addresses so many of the important issues that affect America today.
This book both maps out the group's travels and dives deeply into subjects such as: the history and geology of the National Parks of the West; farming, animal life, and conservation; the importance of outdoor recreation, including hunting and fishing; and building both local and national communities across party lines - all subjects very close to Nick's heart.
With wit, heartwarming stories, and a keen insight into new and exciting ways to see both the past and the future of the country, Nick Offerman is ready to tackle his most important subject yet.
