About this title


The photographs and text of Fifty Miles from Home record the rhythms of life on the Dufurrena family ranch in the Quinn River Valley, and the rugged, heartbreakingly beautiful landscape of northern Nevada. The book reveals the loyalty and pride of ranchers clinging to their beleaguered lifestyle, the joys of several generations of a family sharing work and play, and the dignity of hard work done well. It also unveils the unexpected wonders of the Great Basin landscape.
