Summary
The High Country is the land of grizzly bears and giant trees, of frigid winters and scorching summers, of tough ranchers and gold-rush fever. From the Rockies to the Sierra Nevada, in this land of extreme seasons survival demands endurance. It’s all about taking what you need to stay alive by whatever means, from parasitic plants to thieving black bears, and tenacious pikas to battling bison.
