KILLDOZER, Patrick Brower
Thursday, July 5th 6-8 PM
Off the Beaten Path is happy to host Patrick Brower, author of KILLDOZER: The True Story of the Colorado Bulldozer Rampage, about Marvin Heemeyer's bulldozer frenzy that destroyed 13 buildings in a small mountain town, casting light on that bizarre event and the rash of violent rampages in America and this country’s fact-challenged landscape. Using audio tapes left behind by Marvin Heemeyer, and police footage of the rampage, Patrick Brower gives a glimpse into the mind of the man behind the Killdozer. Using a multi-media presentation, Brower discusses how Marvin came to live in Grand County, how he felt betrayed by locals, and how he decided to build a tank out of a 60 ton Komatsu bulldozer.
