Man has often turned to Nature to find himself... But finding yourself in America at the end of the 20th century is not so easy. Now, when man leaves the suburbs, he finds not the great shining mountains of his expectations and dreams, but gleaming Mercedes-Benzes rocketing through roads carved out of the great Rockies, leading from jet-set ski resort to high-priced condominiums. David Thomson wanted to see if he could survive on his own--in the wilderness, with his muscles, his rifle and his wits. Instead, he had to confront a horror far more frightening than threat to life or limb that nature threw his way: He realized that the wilderness is gone. IT's been bought by the rich--sold to the highest bidder. In the Shining Mountains is a first-person record of a man's mental odyssey, a man who had to find inside himself what he could no longer find outdoors.
