Bad Land

Jonathan Raban

Jonathan Raban takes the reader on an enthralling journey into the least populated and least known region in the United States, Montana, and finds there the heart and soul of the country. Bringing to life the extraordinary landscape of the prairie and the homesteaders whose dreams foundered there, and reaching forward through history to the present day, Bad Land uncovers the dangerous legacy of American innocence gone sour.
