really liked it

I picked up a copy of this because I really liked Grant's most recent book "God's Middle Finger..." Of all the types of folks listed in the title Indians and Conquistadors get the most attention. Not a bad thing except I was hoping that there would be more accounts of Grant's first hand encounters with hoboes, train hoppers, hitchhikers, etc. There is quite a bit of text dedicated to the history of interaction between Native Americans and lesser known early American explorers. The sections on the Rainbow festivals and elderly RV owners were also pretty good. Grant covers a lot of ground in 300 pages.
