In this unconventional memoir, Kevin Holdsworth ruminates on the guts?or foolishness?it takes to raise a family and put down roots in remote, unpredictable country. Growing up in Utah, Holdsworth couldn?t wait to move away. Once ensconced on the East Coast, however, he found himself writing westerns and dreaming of the mountains he?d skied and climbed. He moved to a small Wyoming town. He writes of a mountaineering companion's death, the difficult birth of his son, and his father's terminal illness?encounters with mortality that sharpened his ideas about risk, care, and commitment. He puts a new spin on mountaineering literature, telling wild tales from his reunion with the mountains but also relating his discovery that it took surprising willpower to turn back from risks he would have taken before he became a father. Readers who love the outdoors will enjoy this funny and touching take on settling down and adventuring in the West's most isolated country.
From the Publisher:
In a vivid portrayal of life in the country, a man who moved to a small Wyoming town to get away from the city life shares his experience living in a merciless environment--from a mountaineering companion's death and the difficult birth of his son, to a bear destroying an entire expedition's food--which sharpened his ideas about risk, care, and commitment.In a vivid portrayal of life in the country, a man who moved to a small Wyoming town to get away from the city life shares his experience living in a merciless environment--from a mountaineering companion's death and the difficult birth of his son, to a bear destroying an entire expedition's food--which sharpened his ideas about risk, care, and commitment.
