From the back of the book:
Outside is America. Its most exciting and captivating notion is the West. This is not only a geographic place, it’s a state of mind, a part of people?s imagination. Out here, you can leave your old wardrobe behind and acquire a new identity, creating the platform for a new beginning.

In this stunning book, offering a European take on the American West, Swedish writer Lars ?berg and photographer Lars Strandberg journey through the mythology and the landscape of the wide expanses. With designer Ronnie Nilsson they have created a truly beautiful and engrossing portrait of the modern West.
