Summary
Richard Grant spent fifteen years wandering throughout the United States, never spending more than three weeks in one place, and getting to know America2s nomads--truckers, tramps, rodeo cowboys, tie-dyed T-shirt concert followers, flea market traders, retirees who live year-round in their RVs, and the murderous Freight Train Riders of America (FTRA). As an outsider aching for the 3balm of motion, 4 Grant uses these lives and his own to examine the myths and realities of the wandering life. Along with a personal account, American Nomads traces the history of wandering in the New World, through vividly told stories of frontiersmen, fur trappers and cowboys, Comanche and Apache warriors, all the way back to the first Spanish explorers who crossed the continent
