Fool's Gold : Lives, Loves and Misadventure
Telluride, Colorado is in the heart of the Four Corners, the only place where four states (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona) meet each other. It is a place known for droughts, cloudbursts, massive snow piles and mountains over 14, 000 feet high. When Rob Schultheis arrived there in 1973, Telluride was a remote mining town where local families had lived for generations, where wolverines and grizzly bears were still seen roaming around the countryside. Today it is a haven for rich skiers. With wit and insight, Schultheis chronicles the changing face of the once remote regions of the West. He tells of the landscape, the newcomers and the, sometimes eccentric, locals.

"With a style as untamed as his subject, Schultheis takes readers deep into a land he loves yet refuses to sentimentalize."
