Event Description

Fifty years of travel by bus, hitching, and self-drive through the glories of the American West: from Jasper and Banff in the north to the Grand Canyon, and through its history from the Conquistadors to Crazy Horse. The story is peppered with anecdotes, of contact with native Americans, Mormon fundamentalists, and 'just plain folks'. The talk is illustrated with over two hundred photographs.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
