Nestled among Colorado's wild rocky mountains, this little town is an idyllic combination of breathtaking natural beauty and modern luxury. A mix of classic Wild West and international sophistication, of rugged individualism and community ideals, Aspen is more than a location--it's an idea and an attitude. Olympic skiers brush elbows with artists; politicians and media moguls rub shoulders with local ranchers; and ski bums dance the night away with Hollywood celebrities. Once a fledgling silver-mining town, Aspen has kept its Western roots while growing into a cosmopolitan melting pot of jet setters, intellectuals and athletes who gather to revel in the legendary powder in the winter and renowned cultural festivals in the summer. Drawing on the words and photo albums of the town's most illustrious inhabitants, Aspen insider Kathryn Livingston elegantly captures its dazzling mix of society, culture and natural beauty.
