Jay Dusard is probably best known for his 1983 photo essay "The North American Cowboy: A Portrait". This work is widely recognized as one of the best collection of photographs documenting the life and work of western cowboys. In this later collection, Dusard presents the landscapes most often associated with the rangelands and deserts of the West and often occupied by the cowboys and wranglers found in his earlier work.

The words "open country" often give the illusion of a visual frontier without limits. But much has changed in the American West in the nearly 200 years since Lewis and Clark traversed Eden.The land that was once strictly the domain of teeming populations of wild creatures and appropriately small numbers of Native American peoples has become interlaced with railroads, power lines, highways, towns, cities, suburbs, irrigated farmlands, open-pit and strip mines, artificial lakes, military bases, and recreational sites. Yet much about this muscular, sculptural landscape remains to be celebrated, and photographer Jay Dusard has been doing so for almost three decades.From Alberta to Sonora, Dusard has photographed the North American West, at times in the parks and monuments, but more often in the rangelands and desert country between the national shrines. Jay works in black-and-white with 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras and, since 1991, with a 4x10-inch superwide panoramic camera of his own design and construction.

Jay Dusard is probably best known for his 1983 photo essay "The North American Cowboy: A Portrait". This work is widely recognized as one of the best collection of photographs documenting the life and work of western cowboys. In this later collection, Dusard presents the landscapes most often associated with the rangelands and deserts of the West and often occupied by the cowboys and wranglers found in his earlier work. The photographs span 25 years or so and range from the minimalist "Merriam Crater, Arizona" (Plate 1) to the sensory packed "Glen Canyon of the Colorado River, Arizona" (Plate 39). All of the images are technically well done and superbly reproduced .

Not only does the reader get to view some fabulous landscape photography but the author has also included some of his line drawings for our enjoyment. These seemingly inconspicuous little additions are themselves artistic studies of the West and deserve the readers close attention.

I found this book to be a great addition to my library. I have other photographic collections, most of which sit on my shelf after one or two perusals, but this one I take down every now and again to study the passages included or find new details in the images or examine the drawings a little closer. I think anyone who appreciates fine photography and enjoys of the thoughts and "scribbles" of an insightful artist, would like to own this book.

I thought there would be more portraits. The landscapes are well done. The portraits are well done too, just not that many of them.
