    .. Brief Review: NEW WEST
    .. Brief Bio: NNDB
    .. Brief Quote:From New West.



    Both the man and his girlfriend Louise have years of relationship wreckage behind them, but he has become "so powerfully attached to her it made [him] uncomfortable that she wasn't interested in discussing our mutual future."



    Louise is a water rights lawyer, and along the journey she remarks, "According to the law, water has no reality except its use. In Montana, water isn't even wet. Every time some misguided soul suggests that fish need it, it ends up in the state supreme court."



    The man is newly prosperous because he had "caught the upswing in our local economy: cars, storage, tool rental, and mortgage discounting." Traffic jams and bad drivers plague their trip as they pass through places such as West Yellowstone, which "seemed entirely given over to the well-being of the snowmobile."
