“Tragedy and Triumph in Mount Harris”
They are always there, raging, rumbling, and ruminating on the spirit of the West they say has been lost... They are the Boys at the Bar…The Bar is the Corral Club in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. This collection of Sureva Towler's essays on the boys--many of which appeared in The Denver Post--give the reader an insight into the often troubling, often hilarious politics of Western small-town life. As the boys drink, laugh, and carouse, they also tell the stories that define us. A lament for the West that is being lost, this book is also a celebration for what remains and a reminder to drop in to the local watering hole for a cold one with friends.
