The Last Season is good. It's about Randy Morgensen, the backcountry ranger who went MIA in the Sierra Nevadas.

Anything my friend, Dave Petersen has written is really good, especially "A Man Made of Elk".

Craig Childs' "The Secret Knowledge of Water" or "House of Rain" are both good.

They're ALL good!

Cormac McCarthy... dark and intense tales

The Peterson Field Guides... I just love expanding my knowledge about the animals and plants I encounter in the field

Beyond the Hundredth Meridian by Wallace Stegner.... a great book about John Wesley Powell and his exploration of the West

William Gay... similar to Faulkner and McCarthy

Anything from Skeeter Skelton. His books are out of print and can be pricey but well worth it. Start with "Good Friends, Good Guns, and Good Whiskey."

I just finished the audio book "Apocalyptic Planet" by Craig Childs, narrated by the author. Craig is a fellow Coloradan, living near Paonia. He presents a lot of info related to both current and historic climate change, and he traveled the globe in search of places where the geologic and climatic TEOTWAWKI is occurring. Great reading, regardless of your position on the matter.

Currently listening to "River Monsters" by Jeremy Wade. I have a few earthly heroes, and Jeremy is one of them. So far it's fascinating.

I highly recommend James Alexander Thom's books about George Rogers Clark, and William Clark (his younger brother).
