Telluride, Colorado, is a seven-hour drive from Denver and located in the heart of the Four Corners, the only place in America where four states (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona) meet one another. Known for droughts, cloudbursts, massive snow piles, and 12,000-plus-foot mountains, Telluride is also a place where cultures collide.
When Rob Schultheis arrived in Telluride in 1973, his first home was a tarpaper sheepherder's shack, and Telluride was a sleepy, remote mining town where local families had lived for generations, and where officially extinct wolverines and grizzly bears still roamed the countryside.
This priceless collection of essays will appeal to nature lovers, history buffs, and all who are drawn to the mystery, romance, and drama of the American West.

From the Back Cover:

When Rob Schultheis arrived in Telluride, Colorado - in the heart of the Four Corners where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona meet - in 1973, it was a remote mining town where families had lived for generations. Today Telluride is a second-home haven to rich skiers.
With wit and insight, Schultheis chronicles the changing face of the once-remote regions of the American West, and their reluctant journey into the mainstream. He weaves fascinating tales of the locals: the town doctor who chases UFOs in his Cessna; the sinister magic of desert ghosts; a Navajo rock band that covers old Elvis Presley songs; and the crazy goings-on when cabin fever sets in among the recently arrived - himself included.

About the Author:

ROB SCHULTHEIS is also the author of Bandit Country (page 63) and The Hidden West (page 128). His work has appeared in the Washington Post, National Geographic Traveler, and Outside magazine. He lives in Telluride, Colorado.
