“Forrest Fenn is a national treasure,” actress Suzanne Somers writers in the foreword to Fenn’s latest memoir. “He is the Mark Twain of our times, a storyteller extraordinaire and teacher of life.”

Fenn, the famed Santa Fe, New Mexico, collector, has assembled a collection of stories, anecdotes and life lessons (and wonderful photos and illustrations). Written in his trademark folksy, charming style, he covers Vietnam, Jackie Kennedy, art, his mother, dogs, wild burros, Yellowstone, etc. And he writes about his appreciation of history, the West and nature. “Every Montana evening when I smashed a mosquito on my arm, fifteen of his relatives came to the funeral. But the rewards of traipsing through the hills and canyon bottoms are winner-take-all proof of personal fulfillment for me.”
