Living in the Big Empty

Episode 1 of 1

The forbidding and austere landscape of Nevada's Great Basin region attracts people as eclectic as the place they call home. In LIVING IN THE BIG EMPTY, veteran writers and photographers Richard Menzies, William Fox and Bruce Van Dyke relate compelling stories about the region and some of its most colorful residents. Profiles include: Frank Van Zandt, creator of Thunder Mountain, a roadside mishmash of cement, rock and sculpture; drifter Floyd Eaton, the self-appointed lawman of small-town garbage dump; footless hitchhiker and hobo Stanley Gurcze; and artist Dewayne "Dooby" Williams, who lined a dirt road in Black Rock Desert with work inspired by the Big Empty.
