I didn't really like Duncan's 'Out West', a book about Lewis and Clark, but this book is great. He goes to unusual places, meets freaks, weirdos, and regular people, and gives some historical insight but he doesn't allow historical accounts to constitute half the book. He also includes plenty of pictures and maps. There are few, if any anecdotes that appear meaningless or uninteresting. I wish I had gone with him on this trip.
