From book jacket: "In the Best from Out West, author Chuck Woodbury treats us to a vision of an unfamiliar western terrain. We visit homes in hollowed redwoods, or carved inside great mounts of limestone. We stop in towns like Bill, Wyoming, population 1 (down from 5 twelve years ago). We eat a plate of cow brains in the Oxford Cafe, wage a war on chipmunks over Cheezits, sample Space Burgers, potato ice cream, and other culinary wonders. "In a campground, a woman bending to tie a bandage around her leg makes an evening's entertainment. In Death Valley, where the ground heats up to 200 degrees, you can cook an egg in the shade. There are towns where candy costs a penny, museums with such attractions as Jake the Alligator Man, stretches of road where you can drive for hours seeing no one, and twilit evenings that settle silently, broken only by the howl of a coyote. "The Best from Out West is a wonder. Ten years ago, public relations man Chuck Woodbury decided to forsake his rooted life-style and lead the life of a nomad. Six months a year now, armed with little more than computer, flashlight, and radio, he roams the West in his RV and writes about the people he meets and the places he encounters, compiling these pieces in the world's only mobile newspaper, which he circulates quarterly. In The Best from Out West, we are treated to the choicest samples of his paper. And when we read this book, we feel an odd and delightful nostalgia, as we explore this foreign land within our borders. "Chuck Woodbury began publishing his quarterly "on the road" newspaper with his desktop publishing system in late 1987. A self-described "connoisseur of offbeat journalism," when not on the road Woodbury makes his home in Grass Valley, California."
