These entertaining and insightful essays are gathered from Daleys years traveling, working, writing, and finding his way in Americas far west and beyond. With lyric grace and disarming honesty, he captures the optimism, experimentation and self-discovery that marked the 1970s and 80s for a generation. Traversing the shifting ground between meditation and memoir, Daley offers a unique take on our time and culture. Whether traveling by freight-train, fishing boat, boot leather or thumb, his perspective is always fresh and inviting. Daleys language is tuned the music of the moment, and his poets eye is alert to details that bring his essays to life. Looking back over his own life--from early seminary days in Boston, poetic rambles on the road in the West, teaching English in Hungary--he scrutinizes our culture and offers a disarming portrait or an artist coming to terms with his and our history.
