Island in the Sky

Muriel Marshall's last book depicts the large flat-topped mountain in whose shadow she lived most of her life. The author shares the details of Grand Mesa, from its geologic beginnings to its recent history as a ski area. She also tells of its vast variety of animal and plant life, and shares her wonderful photographs of the area. But, just as important is the history of the hardy pioneers who settled this beautiful land.
