9781890437077: Island in the Sky: The Story of Grand Mesa

Marshall has created the definitive book on Grand Mesa, the large table-top mountain which dominates the Grand Junction, Colorado skyline. She shares details about Grand Mesa's geological origins and history, covers the edible as well as the just plain beautiful plants, the big and little beasts and the people -- including the man who brought a herd of only bulls to the mesa and then complained when he didn't get any calves. The mesa, dotted with more than 300 lakes, offers fishing and boating in the summer as well as skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
