A complete artist who Stefano Frollano and Fabio F. Pellegrini observe and study re-reading the history of American music in a journey that starts from Canada to land in California, land dreamed of as the New Heaven: so that the gold rush of 1849 is its recreation during the sixties of the last century, when dozens of musicians will leave for the "Golden State". The unspoiled nature, Native Americans, a new Promised Land become the elements where to measure themselves, transforming the Frontier from a physical to a non-place where imagination and fantasy become more boundaries to reach. The two authors attempt also to verify the interesting hypothesis of the link between the painting of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with the work of Young, which has its roots in cultural humus.
