Booklist Review

Out West is the fruition of Woodbury's dream of being a modern-day nomad traveling the back roads of western states without a particular route or schedule in mind. The dream became a reality a couple of years ago when he hit upon the idea of self-publishing a quarterly road newspaper. His first 24-page tabloid cost less than $1,000 to produce, and he fortuitously mailed 500 copies to the media for free publicity. He and his publication were soon featured on all three major television networks as well as by the Associated Press and People magazine. An avalanche of subscriptions catapulted the little paper into national prominence. This book is a compilation of some of his best writing from the "Roadside Journal" column, a regular feature in Out West. The memorable vignettes consist primarily of insightful observations and impressions of the land, the towns, the roads, and the people--transporting the reader along on all of his adventures. To be illustrated; no index. --Fred Egloff
