Matt Richtel, 'Dead On Arrival' RELEASE PARTY

August 9th, 6pm


Off The Beaten Path

Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Matt Richtel joins OTBP for the RELEASE PARTY of his new book, Dead On Arrival, which largely takes place in the airport of Hayden, Colorado. 
An airplane touches down at a desolate airport in a remote Colorado ski town. Shortly after landing, Dr. Lyle Martin, a world-class infectious disease specialist, is brusquely awakened to shocking news: Everyone not on the plane appears to be dead. While they were in the air, a lethal new kind of virus surfaced, threatening mankind's survival, and now Martin is at the center of the investigation. Dead on Arrival is a brilliantly imaginative, intricately plotted thriller that draws on Matt Richtel's years of science and technology reporting for the New York Times, and establishes him as one of the premier thriller writers working today.

Michael Crouser, 'Mountain Ranch'

AUGUST 16TH - 6 PM

at OFF THE BEATEN PATH

We are happy to be hosting an event with author and photographer Michael Crouser, for his new book, Mountain Ranch.

Mountain Ranch is a ten-year exploration of the disappearing world of cattle ranching in the mountains of Colorado. It concentrates on traditional American living, rather than focusing on how ranching has modernized. In his book, which has been described as a "fine art documentary," Crouser brings a personal approach to this very physical and natural way of life.

“The ranches where Michael Crouser so affectionately captures these scenes tell a story of staying power, of joy in the beauty of the world, of gratitude for the working animals – the dogs and the horses – of midwifery and husbandry, of seeing the seasons through…it is a pleasure to be brought into this out-of- the-way part of the world with such understated passion.”

 

LOOK OUT FOR YOUR CHANCE TO PURCHASE A COPY HERE IN THE FUTURE!
