Rocky Mountain Land Series presents David Williams - Cairns: Messengers in Stone

Historic LoDo: Geologist and acclaimed nature writer David Williams will discuss and sign his new book Cairns: Messengers in Stone ($15.95 Mountaineers Books), in which he explores the history, meaning, and uses of cairns (manmade piles of rock) from the moors of Scotland to the peaks of the Himalaya. Cairns are so much more than a random pile of rocks, knowing how to make cairns can drastically alter the meaning of the formation. Hikers, climbers, travelers, gardeners, and nature buffs alike will delight in this quirky, captivating collection of stories about cairns.
