THE GREAT AMERICAN WEST
Are your thoughts bound for vast expanses of prairie, forbidding rocky mountains, and roaring rivers? Have gone west, young man?
A fascination to the entire world, the American West looms large in the mythology of our planet, as cultures collided amid rugged and often threatening, natural settings. An untouched landscape of varying texture came under the dominion of a boisterous new government, as an older way of life became slowly erased. Still, mankind’s believed control over nature shatters under the blizzards of vast mountain ranges, white hot heat so searing the land bursts into flames, and the raging floods that rise in a breath.
