Squarish 8vo. 213pp. As a young recovering cancer patient, Gessner moved from his family home on Cape Cod to the mountains of Boulder, CO. This collection of vignettes examines Gessner's newfound love of Boulder and the West as he explores and learns the natural history of the area.

His various trips throughout the West reveal a joy in life and the outdoors that most readers will find contagious.
