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.

Bonanza times photos of the Comstock Lode by Carlton Watkins

I just discovered this excellent collection of Comstock Lode photographs shot by legendary landscape photographer Carlton Watkins in 1878. Watkins is most famous as the first person to photograph Yosemite—Mt. Watkins, which rises across Tenaya Canyon from Half Dome, is named for him. Watkins visited Virginia City and Gold Hill in 1878, at the height...

“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
