"Lasso the Wind is like a good road trip across the West. You drive, you stop to camp, you fall in love, and then you decide to stay. Egan’s words are helping to settle the political chaos of this changing landscape. Alongside his sharp eye for details and clarity of mind is an ethical spine that is helping to shape the new West. I’m so glad he’s here."
–Terry Tempest Williams
"Here is the REAL West of today–some of it still Old West, much of it New–told in wonderful, entertaining style by one of America’s most perceptive journalists. Egan is himself a well-rooted Westerner, and we couldn’t ask for a better guide to all the excitement and change going on out there today."
–Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
