Big Sky Café (& Other Schools I’ve Attended) The Book – This is a collection of stories about growing up in Montana and observing the human condition in most of its forms by hanging out in a local gathering place - Big Sky Cafe. To Quote from the title story: “We are all bound together by a common denominator, that sometimes sticky glue of human experience that we thought happened only to us. It's a joy to find that these moments of personal triumph or turmoil happened to everybody, in one way or another. And it's the ‘one way or another’ that makes for a good story.” So, find a comfortable chair, sit back and enjoy. There are treasures in your mental attic you have either misplaced or haven’t examined in a long, long time. They’re in this book.

This book is currently out of print. Watch “News” on this website for more information.
