Country Editor's Boy

(2014)
A non fiction book by

 
Celebrated nature writer Hal Borland's memoir of change, from his boyhood in pioneer country in Colorado to his manhood, hurtling into a new age

Country Editor's Boy
picks up where Hal Borland's classic memoir High, Wide and Lonesome left off: with Borland, on the cusp of adulthood in the early twentieth century, making his way in an eastern Colorado town that still retained all the flavors of the Old West. Borland's father, the editor of a local weekly newspaper, was working to help his publication transition along with the town around him. At the same time, young Hal was experiencing dramatic social and economic change in his own way. In a matter of a decade, Borland's Colorado town shifted from a frontier outpost to part of a rapidly urbanizing new America. This memoir shows a boy entering adulthood as the world around him comes of age.

Evocative and wholly engrossing, Country Editor's Boy is a vividly drawn portrait of western life, by one of the greatest naturalist writers of his age.
