Read full description of the books:



"American Nomads traces the history of wandering in the New World, through vividly told stories of frontiersmen, fur trappers and cowboys, Comanche and Apache warriors, all the way back to the first Spanish explorers, like Cabeza de Vaca, who crossed the continent. What unites these disparate characters, as they range back and forth across the centuries, is a stubborn conviction that the only true freedom is to roam across the land." As an outsider aching for the "balm of motion," Grant uses these lives and his own to examine the myths and realities of the wandering life, and its contradiction with the sedentary American dream.
