Heading Home begins with Peter Anderson's dharma-bum passion for the road, which leads him through the mountains and deserts of the American West, and eventually lands him in an eccentric end-of-the-road town fill of mystics, misfits, and mountain dwellers. This book is a gathering of "field notes"—observations, recollections, and stories along the way, where home is understood as a work in progress and the way is a road that never ends.
Peter Anderson is an English professor and the recipient of the Academy of American Poets award. He is the author of First Church of Higher Elevations. He lives in Crestone, Colorado.
