Inspired by the ACE Double books of the fifties, in which genre novels (especially Westerns and Science Fiction) were paired, From the Golden West Notebook brings together Jason Morris’ poetry and the first section of Thoreau's Walden, the chapter on “Economy.” Jason Morris’ serial poem (also called “From the Golden West Notebook”) follows a character named “I” through a hallucinogenic western landscape populated by the ghosts of Melville, Spicer, Thoreau, and the distressed magnetic reels of Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes. Thoreau’s account begins on July 4th, 1845, when he moved into the cabin he built. In the “Economy” section, he details the building of the cabin and lists his costs. From the Golden West Notebook is bound so the two writings mirror one another, tête-bêche (head to toe), and features the artwork of Jason Grabowski and Jesse Schlessinger.
