Fool's Gold : When Rob Schultheis arrived in Telluride, Colorado - in the heart of the Four Corners, where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona meet - in 1973, it was a remote mining town where families had lived for generations. Today Telluride is a second-home haven for rich skiers. With wit and insight, Schultheis chronicles the changing face of the once-remote regions of the American West, and their reluctant journey into the mainstream. He weaves fascinating tales of the locals: the town doctor who chases UFOs in his Cessna; the sinister magic of desert ghosts; a Navajo rock band that covers old Elvis songs; and the crazy goings-on when cabin fever sets in among the recently arrived - himself included.
