"As cattlemen, we dream of what life was like on a trail crew driving herds north with no fences in sight. Places where technology fades away, and the spirit of the wild is still king. Something has driven J.B. to travel to where the modern world has just begun to meet the untamed land. In this book, he records what those worlds are like while they still exist." - Colter Wall
