about this item

The beauty, myth, and reality of the American West captured in the emotive and striking photographs of Jim Krantz. The Way of the West depicts the reality behind a romanticized lifestyle of grit, gumption, and backbone, while honoring the authenticity and mythology of the American West. Feel the sun beating through a cotton shirt . Smell the dust as the breeze drives across the open plain . Taste the salt of the sweat and hear the distant highway in its duet with the hawks overhead . The Way of the West rawly and artistically displays the intimate relationship between nature’s desert landscapes and the people who live and work among the dust and the clouds . An iconic folk hero, the cowboy is equal parts human being and philosophical ideal, and only one part of the Western frontier . The photos of Jim Krantz collected in The Way of the West tell the complete story; they illustrate a state of mind driven by the simplicity of life on the plains, the illusive idea of true freedom, and personal portraits of a exceptional circle of friends .
