Synopsis: This book is a documentary of people--individuals, couples, families--who work and live on the American western landscape. In striking black and white images and plain spoken quotes (including personal and community anecdotes) Drummond presents a true depiction of rural life at the end of the twentieth century. Author/photographer Jill Brody interviewed Drummond ranchers about their everyday lives. What emerges is a story about a changing way of life, a difference in priorities, and a real struggle to survive all with a grace of acceptance. As a cultural historian, Brody has captured the essence of this now unique way of life in the West by simply presenting what is.
From the Back Cover:
There was a time when Drummond Community Hall was considered the finest dance floor in western Montana and the Drummond Rodeo was such a major happening that the main street of town would be closed for the weekend. While those days have faded to memories, the spirit of those times lives on in the individuals, couples, and families who continue to work the land in this small Montana town.
When Jill Brody first visited Drummond in 1991, a rancher spoke about one of his grandsons who would inherit his ranch and how difficult the life is. He then lamented that his only son and other grandchildren were not interested in ranching. When Brody returned to Drummond one year later, she thought she would find a town suffering from the loss of its children and its purpose. Instead she found ranchers with an inherent sense of purpose and contentment with life, despite its hardships. Their story became Drummond: Ranch Life in the West.
Through interviews with Drummond ranchers about their everyday lives and poignant black-and-white photographs of the town, its people, its rodeo, and its ranches, Drummond captures rural life at the end of the twentieth century. What emerges is a story about a changing way of life, a difference in priorities, and a very real struggle to survive, all faced with grace and acceptance.
