I came West from Boston to ski bum for a season in 1983, and forgot to
go back. But I didn't forget how to be a bum. I now live in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains
with my wife and our two teen-aged kids. I am the author of three
books about living and parenting in the modern American West: The Monkey Wrench Dad (2008),Why I'm Against It All (2003), and
A Wilder Life: Essays from Home (1995).
