The arid cold deserts of western North America are often spare landscapes, whose small towns are often inhabited by eccentrics, individualists and wayward believers. The Great Basin describes a region of North America in many different ways. It describes a geographic region of basin and range, a biological region of grass and scrub, and a historical region of related Native tribes.
