Heading Home: Field Notes (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Heading Home begins with Peter Anderson's dharma-bum passion for the road, which leads him through the mountains and deserts of the American West, and eventually lands him in an eccentric end-of-the-road town fill of mystics, misfits, and mountain dwellers. This book is a gathering of "field notes"--observations, recollections, and stories along the way, where home is understood as a work in progress and the way is a road that never ends.
