Butte: not dusty 

I grew up reading the delightful sports columns of Leigh Montville, so normally I would be heartened to hear that he's writing a biography of Evel Knievel... except for the way the book is described at publishersmarketplace:
...examining how a boy from a dusty western town became a legend who embodied Americana in the 1970s and beyond

Ummm, anyone involved in the book know anything about Butte? Or is this just one of those laws, that "Western town" must be preceded by "dusty" the way a baseball pitcher's "stuff" must be preceded by "filthy"?

I'm always interested in feedback, via info at johnclaytonbooks dot com
