Author Will Hoyt takes a seat on the porch alongside the microphone inside the Brass Spittoon. John and Will discuss Hoyt’s new book The Seven Ranges: Ground Zero for the Staging of America. Listen to the podcast here.
In the book, Hoyt transforms the area’s colorful past into a lament over the loss of an “integrative center” last seen in feudal Europe. Well read and well spoken, this carpenter joins everything from surveying techniques to Jimmy the Greek into a compelling narrative of despair and hope.
