Sinopsis:

"A skeptical Canadian's odyssey and modern-day search for the American Dream while walking the famous Mormon Trail. Chisholm's solo journey from the Missouri River to Salt Lake City is both a revealing and tongue-in-cheek account of the Mormon pioneers as well as a contemporary and compelling narrative of the American dreamers he came across on his 1100 mile walk. Hard-edged, sardonic and at times brutally revealing in his writing, Chisholm contrasts the failed dreams of "community" with the dream of "individuality" that dominates today's mythic West - reminiscent of John Steinbeck and William Least Heat-Moon but penned with the irreverence of Edward Abbey."

About the Author:

Former head of the Department of Communication at Utah State University. Chisholm's poetry, fiction, and essays have appeared in numerous journals, most recently in Creative Nonfiction, Western Humanities Review, and Lake Effect.
