Description
A big city boy with a university education, Jim Greer was haunted by the kind of dreams that afflict people like Thurber's Walter Mitty -- dreams of running away from respectable careers to live intensely, on the edge, by the sweat of your brow and the skin of your teeth. At age forty, Jim fled the conventional middle-class Denver life he believed was killing him to operate a guide and outfitting service on Colorado's Western Slope. Riding West is the story of his adventures. This is a unique and engaging look at the life of a contemporary outfitter and will appear to those interested in fishing, big-game hunting, the American West, or to city slickers who want a taste of life in the great outdoors.
