America's last best place The West Boulder valley lies nestled in the Montana Rockies, and when acclaimed travel writer John Heminway first laid eyes on the dilapidated Bar 20 Ranch he knew he was home. "Any sensible person would have walked away," he writes, "but for me the Bar 20 was perfection." In this eloquent book, at once a personal memoir and a vivid portrait of a classic American landscape, its people, and its history, he summons the frontier spirit that still draws men and women to the remote corners of our country where the Old West still flourishes in a unique mix of fierce independence and neighborly welcome. With a sure sense of place, Heminway evokes this spectacular wilderness and the colorful characters who have callled it home, from the trappers and prospectors who haunted the Montana hills more than a century ago to the modern ranchers who are their heirs.
