Rocky Mountain Land Series with Diana Di Stefano presents Encounters in Avalanche Country: A History of Survival in the Mountain West, 1820-1920

Historic LoDo: Diana Di Stefano, assistant professor of history at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, will discuss and sign her new book Encounters in Avalanche Country: A History of Survival in the Mountain West, 1820-1920 (University of Washington Press). “Before the Rocky Mountains, Cascades, Sierra Nevadas, or Selkirks lured skiers, snowmobilers, and other fun-seekers, these rugged ranges drew fur traders, miners, and railroad workers. Encounters in Avalanche Country offers a fast-paced and well-researched retelling of the tragedies that resulted when snow slides slammed into homes, trains, and industrial workplaces through the North American West.” —Thomas Andrews, University of Colorado at Boulder
