Synopsis : Richard Menzies has logged a quarter of a million miles on his vintage Volkswagon bus in pursuit of pictures and unusual stories. His favorite destination is Nevada, which encloses more open public land than any other state in the lower forty-eight. "Nevada's backcountry is sparsely populated yet surprisingly rich in diversity," he writes. "Her social fabric is a colorful tapestry of cultures and ethnicities, fringed by eccentrics who simply defy categorization. Think of the Silver State as a haven for those irregular souls who could never be content with a nine-to-five job or a three bedroom, split-level in suburbia."Passing Through is a compilation of the most memorable "misfits" Menzies has encountered in the course of his peripatetic wanderings across the American Outback.
A propos de l'auteur: In his hometown of Price, Utah, he is remembered as the 98-pound weakling who once got trampled by half the high school football team - just because he wanted to be close to the action. In the years since, he has authored hundreds of magazines and newspaper articles and has exhibited widely.
