Local authors available at Rim Rock Shop

Posted by Sales Manager on 9/11/2014 to New Products

What is a bookstore without books? What comes to mind when you see the words local author?  A cowboy poet?  Some reclusive scribe living anonymously in a cave?  An investigative reporter sleuthing secrets of socialites? 

Colorado National Monument is situated between the desirable western Colorado recreational and retirement communities of Fruita and Grand Junction and can boast shelving several books penned by local authors at the CNMA bookstore and available online. 

Images of America Fruita

Steve and Denise Hight, active in community and business life of Fruita Colorado, authored “Fruita” for the Images of America series. The town of Fruita lies at the west end of the Grand Valley, three miles from the west entrance to Colorado National Monument. For 20 years Denise Hight has been commuting to work – at the Colorado National Monument Association bookstore!

Colorado National Monument, The Story Behind the Scenery

Geologist Hank Schoch decided to stay in the Grand Junction / Fruita area when he retired from National Park Service. Once Chief Ranger at Colorado National Monument, “Colorado National Monument The Story Behind the Scenery,” is Schoch’s second title in the series.

Roadside Geology of Colorado

Felicie Williams, the living member of the Felicie Williams / Halka Chronic duo that penned Roadside Geology of Colorado, Second Edition, this year released the third edition. Williams has lived in the environs of Colorado National Monument since 1992.

People of the Red Earth – American Indians of Colorado

Author Sally Crum chooses to make her home in the Grand Junction area while adding ever more titles to her dossier during retirement.  She originally published People of the Red Earth in 1996 and most recently released this update in 2009.
