Man Facing West is a moving story of personal commitment to the causes of peace, rural development, and ecology.
Author Don Gayton chronicles an American childhood infused with guns, Republican politics, and political dissent. Joining the Peace Corps spawns his enduring interest in small-scale agriculture and rural values. Later, Gayton comes home to confront the moral quagmire of Vietnam and the Draft. Becoming a passionate Canadian, he rediscovers his original attachment to the rugged and heartbreakingly beautiful ecologies and landscapes of the Canadian and American West.
Man Facing West merges fiction and non-fiction, stitched together with threads of autobiography. As he probes politics, conscience, ecology, and history, we are reminded of Gayton’s uncanny ability to transform reality into magic.
