Publisher's Description

The beauty, myth, and reality of the American West captured in the emotive and striking photographs of Jim Krantz. The Way of the West depicts the reality behind a romanticized lifestyle of grit, gumption, and backbone, while honoring the authenticity and mythology of the American West. Feel the sun beating through a cotton shirt . Smell the dust as the breeze drives across the open plain . Taste the salt of the sweat and hear the distant highway in its duet with the hawks overhead . The Way of the West rawly and artistically displays the intimate relationship between nature’s desert landscapes and the people who live and work among the dust and the clouds . An iconic folk hero, the cowboy is equal parts human being and philosophical ideal, and only one part of the Western frontier . The photos of Jim Krantz collected in The Way of the West tell the complete story; they illustrate a state of mind driven by the simplicity of life on the plains, the illusive idea of true freedom, and personal portraits of a exceptional circle of friends .
