Very well, thanks. Was crazy busy finishing THE BONANZA KING, and am now crazy busy prepping its launch. Which happens on Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

All dreams of Patagonia are good dreams! And easy ones to make reality. (less)
Gregory Crouch Unfortunately, Tom, that isn’t my decision to make. Also unfortunately, I doubt Bantam has any plans to do so.

Gold Rush drawings and photos

The discovery of gold in California touched off a madness that raged worldwide. Although the “yellow fever” didn’t impel John Mackay, hero of The Bonanza King, to the Golden State until the second half of 1851, these scenes would have been typical of how he lived through the rest of the 1850s, when he was...

“The soul of alpinism is to travel light and fast through a dangerous landscape in pursuit of a personal star. That is ascent.”

“The soul of alpinism is to travel light and fast through a dangerous landscape in pursuit of a personal star. That is ascent.”
Gregory Crouch, Enduring Patagonia

“There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had dignity. Certain numbers were the same way and certain dates and these with the names of the places were all you could say and have them mean anything. Abstract words such as glory, honor, courage, or hallow were obscene beside the concrete names of villages, the numbers of roads, the names of rivers, the numbers of regiments and the dates.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
