Summary: "A delightful book about the life and ecology in the unique and spectacular high country. This book is chock full of information, facts, and quotes about the natural mountain environment; recipes, stories, and poems from regional folks; and over 115 illustrations (five full-color) of animals, bugs, plants, and people living in the authors' high altitude home, the Telluride region, nestled in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado.
This book talks about seasonal happenings occuring in the natural world (including the human world) from elevations of 7000 feet to over 14,000 feet. It is arranged by the month like the Old Farmers' Almanac, with each month dedicated to a major environmental topic, such as water, air and soil, plants and animals, and the sun."
