This is a heavy, large-format book; extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.

From the dust jacket:
"In a series of wonderfully entertaining essays, author-adventurer Jeremy Schmidt shares some remarkable personal experiences in Rocky Mountain living: winters as a winterkeeper at Yellowstone National Park where the temperature can drop to 60 degrees below zero, a rare afternoon on an alpine slope surrounded by curiously friendly bighorn sheep, and whitewater rafting through the spectacular River of No Return Wilderness."

Profusely illustrated in 145 full-color photographs (most full-page) with accompanying descriptive captions. "He interlaces his personal experiences with fascinating bits of Rocky Mountain geography and geology, as well as its history and legends, including tales of the early mountain men. Among these are Jim Bridger, Osborne Russell, and the seemingly indestructible John Colter, who escaped from hostile Blackfeet Indians and survived seven days in the wild-stark naked."
