If you haven't read this classic, get it. It's probably at your library. About a guy who grew up a misfit after literally being dropped on his head as a kid, only to find his place in the Colorado Rockies as a ski instructor and bum. Five stars.

Just finished The Lost Cyclist. Needed something light after that so am reading Drink, Play, F@#k.

Have been reading Paul K Chappell's Peaceful Revolution. Is excellent reading and a must for anyone who thinks peace is unattainable. Was recommended by our friend in BV who we stayed with in July. He spoke there recently and she was extremely impressed. Would loved to have heard and met this young person (a West Point grad and Iraq War vet).

Thanks for giving this thread a bump after 7 months. TeeVee is dumb. Professional sports are dumb. People should read more books.
Now reading: "The Last Of His Kind" by David Roberts, bio of American mountaineer Brad Washburn and "Smythe's Mountains, The Climbs Of F.S. Smythe" by Harry Calvert, both available from the Denver Public Library.

Also just finished "The Long Way"[b][/b] by Bernard Moitessier. Although I have little time spent on the ocean, his spiritual reflections, in my mind, translate quite well to my affinity for the mountains.
