The West was always perceived by the Americans as a great potential tourist destination. They were right to certain extents,but the twentieth-century tourism brought about a great change. Hal talks about all the devious things behind this tourism. The costs of running it overwhelms the benefits of it. The control of tourism has slowly but greatly moved out of the hands of the Americans, to the outsiders who stay. Hal describes this as a colonization of the twentieth-century, that affects everybody in the west. The book aptly projects the scenario which none should ignore.
