Publisher's Description

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
From 2006 to 2012, Seattle-based photographer Adrain Chesser (born 1965) and Native American ritualist Timothy White Eagle traveled throughout the western states of Nevada, Idaho, California and Oregon with a loose band of comrades, practicing a hunter-gatherer way of life. This bold adventure necessitated the collective rearing, killing and cooking of animals, foraging for berries, sleeping outdoors or creating shelter and surviving harsh terrain. Chesser and White Eagle’s experiment produced the body of work titled The Return, a lyrical portrait of a contemporary nomadic existence. 'Give back more than you take' is a well-known tenet of early hunter-gather societies, and The Return is a complex exploration of the attempt to implement this mythic ideal as it intersects with the reality of modern life.
