The author introduces you to the other side of the world-renowned ski resort of Aspen, Colorado--not all glitz and glamour, but the year-round struggles of rustic mountain living against the backdrop of an exploding new culture sweeping the country. She shares her adventures with wood-burning stoves, horses, snowmobiles, tourists and even an occasional celebrity and film crew. Her family was involved in mountain rescues, challenged by belligerent cross-country skiers, and braved terrifying fires. Many clashes with rebellious hippies brought out the authors feistiness and some comflicts came with threats.Ten Miles from Aspen is an entertaining read that flows easily. It explains how one woman came through that era with a more open mind, yet maintained her values. It also depicts her deep appreciation and love for the majesty of the Rocky Mountains. At every turn of a page, you will experience humor as well as serious situations that will compel you to read more.
