About the Author
Richard F. Fleck's first published work, "Palms, Peaks and Prairies", was published in 1967 when he was a young professor of English at the University of Wyoming. After twenty-five years (1965-1990) of teaching literature on the high plains of Wyoming and publishing numerous books including "Henry Thoreau and John Muir Among the Indians" and "Critical Perspectives on Native American Literature" and introductions to trade paperback editions of Thoreau and Muir, he and his wife Maura moved to Denver where he became a college dean on the Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado until his retirement. During this period of time (1990-2001) he published "A Colorado River Reader" (2000) and in retirement wrote and published a collection of his mountaineering essays "Breaking Through the Clouds" (2005); a new and expanded edition of this book entitled "Desert Rims to Mountains High", WestWinds Press/The Pruett Series.
