The High Country Illuminator: A Tale of Light and Darkness and the Ski Bums of Avalon Paperback – January 31, 2013
"The writing is adept, the plot bewildering, the pace dizzy, and the skiing scenes (as the children say) are out of sight." -- Skier magazine
"Extremely bizarre and delightfully humorous ... stirs up the ski resort with professional ability and a touch of magic" -- Oregon Journal
About the Author
In his years of writing for magazines and newspapers, Daniel Ford skied much of North America and Europe, but always he came back to Aspen, the gem of the Colorado Rockies, where he once spent a ski-bum winter and courted the young woman who became his wife. The High Country Illuminator is his tribute to that town and its mountain, which the locals know as Ajax, and to a time when it was possible for hardy young men (and some hardy young women) to live by their wits in what today is the world's most exclusive ski resort.
