History. Nature. Nonfiction. Humor (Nonfiction.) HTML:A humorous and rousing set of literal and figurative sojourns as well as a mission statement about comprehending, protecting, and truly experiencing the outdoors, fueled by three journeys undertaken by actor, humorist, and New York Times bestselling author Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman has always felt a particular affection for the Land of the Freenot just for the people and their purported ideals but to the actual land itself: the bedrock, the topsoil, and everything in between that generates the health of your local watershed. In his new book, Nick takes a humorous, inspiring, and elucidating trip to America's trails, farms, and frontier to examine the people who inhabit the land, what that has meant to them and us, and to the land itself, both historically and currently.  
In 2018, Wendell Berry posed a question to Nick, a query that planted the seed of this book, sending Nick on two memorable journeys with palsa hiking trip to Glacier National Park with his friends Jeff Tweedy and George Saunders, as well as an extended visit to his friend James Rebanks, the author of The Shepherd's Life and English Pastoral. He followed that up with an excursion that could only have come about in 2020Nick and his wife, Megan Mullally, bought an Airstream trailer to drive across (several of) the United States. These three quests inspired some deep-ish" thinking from Nick, about the history and philosophy of our relationship with nature in our national parks, in our farming, and in our backyards; what we mean when we talk about conservation; and the importance of outdoor recreation, all subjects very close to Nick's heart. 
With witty, heartwarming stories and a keen insight into the human problems we all confront, this is both a ramble through and celebration of the land we all love.

I tried to listen to this audiobook on a free platform a year or two ago, and it was so slow at regular speed that it started to put me to sleep. Not a great choice while driving.

I prefer to listen to celebrity memoir/autobiography, especially when the voice is an iconic one like Nick’s, so I gave this a try again—this time using a platform with adjustable playback speed. 1.5x = perfect. Now I was able to enjoy it, laugh, ponder, and appreciate it in all its glory.

I can’t say I learned much from this book, but I was quite entertained, and my awe for Nick Offerman has increased. He’s just such an interesting human, and in many ways he *is* Ron Swanson. ( )

Listened to this on audio, read by Offerman himself. First, I'd listen to him narrate the phone book, he's excellent. Second, I loved this book, but from reading some of the reviews afterword, I might be in the minority, but this book so worked for me. In the first section he tells the tale of his trip to Glacier National Park with Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and George Saunders. The second part is the experiences he and his wife, Megan Mullaly have with a new RV as they travel across the country to visit their families during the pandemic. Sure he's part of the "liberal elite", he recognizes his privilege in his stories and he wear's his politics on his sleeve. But his love of nature and his pull no punches, folksy style was very engaging for me. Recommend ( )

I very much enjoyed Offerman's humor, perspective, and even politics. I took so much more away from this than I expected and certainly earmarked a lot of pages to review/reconsider. ( )

while I totally support the concepts of small farming and work ethic , etc. , it was hard to get past the rich guy using enormous trailer and gas guzzling truck while preaching aspect of the whole thing. Granted, he acknowledges it, and there were some funny bits ( )
