About the Book

Loving Allis Chalmers follows decades of a reluctant, meandering journey that takes the reader from the backroads of impoverished rural Idaho to the backyards of the rich and famous in resort towns just hours away. Ascetic in a hawker’s stall, Marxist in a capitalist’s guise, the author relates the subjective changes that arise when melding the incompatible. Whether weaving spare desert prose with esoteric Buddhist doctrine, ecology with existentialism, or agriculture with Greek thought, Loving Allis Chalmers is a book as rarified as its subject matter, tracing the trivial to the profound, the anecdotal to the universal with graceful and unexpected turns. No reader will go unchallenged—and no reader will go unrewarded.
