Softcover, 352 pages, September 2001

Rich with history and the tarnished legacy of the American dream, Yonder is an affecting memoir that tells the story behind the "Bar 20," Heminway's 36-acre ranch. Searching for traces of the ranch's former owners, Heminway divines their reasons for coming, speculates on their dreams, and teases apart what prompted them to leave. In the process, Yonder taps into the essence not only of Montana, but also of the entire American West writ large. Yonder is an indelible testament to the ancient, sacred relationship between man and nature. In spare and quietly powerful prose, John Heminway takes us deep inside the Montana landscape he calls home and shares his intimate discoveries of the thousands of pioneers who preceded him to this seemingly remote corner of our continent.

Dimensions (in inches): 5 3/4 x 8 3/4
