Ronald (Eng., Univ. Of Nevada, Reno) combined a personal travel story with a camp robbinswold literary review and created an amazingly creative story about the states west of the Missouri River. In each of the 17 chapters, she describes the specific area she visited and the “ghosts” that seem to come from her. From a national monument on the Little Bighorn battlefield in Montana in the south to a horse auction in Texas in a cowboy country, as well as from the foggy shores of the Oregon Pacific Cemetery east to the Kansas plains, where hundreds of buffalo were killed by hundreds of thousands, Ronald is entangled firsthand those who made places famous or notorious for their views on places today. Mount Rushmore, a mining country in Colorado, Death Valley, Georgia, New Mexico by O’Keeffe, pre-war and modern Tucson.
