In his fifth collection of love letters to Mother Earth, Stillman guides us through Colorado's rugged San Juan Mountains on skis during an epic winter of record-breaking snowfall. Rather than showcasing harrowing climbs and extreme descents, he focuses instead on the solace that winter offers the human soul. Following his daily backcountry excursions, we experience unparalleled solitude and every kind of weather imaginable-all described in the poetic verse we've come to admire from Stillman's voice. Using winter as a backdrop to scrub our perspective clean, we examine the ever-widening gap between nature and civilization and ultimately how this will impact the future of humanity itself. Rather than gloom and doom, we uncover hidden truths and timeless wisdom from a viewpoint only wilderness can provide. Solace of Winter is a must-read for anyone wanting to rekindle their relationship with the natural world.
