    About Dave Campbell: 

    Sometime in the early 2000’s, Dave realized that snowboarding was a much smarter means of alpine descent than rappelling, and he hasn’t bored out a v-thread since. While he is a huge fan of the classic terrain in Tahoe and Yosemite, Dave also enjoys “checking out new zones” and has led over a dozen expeditions to China, including the first snowboard descent of the 7,000 meter Koskulak in the Xinjiang Himalaya. Dave is also a builder and a photographer, and can easily be located lingering around the beer counter at the next Alpenglow Speaker Series.

    Why Dave Chose This Book:

    Pulitzer Prize­ winning Lonesome Dove is the quintessential novel of the American Wild West. The story revolves around the relationship between two retired Texas Rangers and their raw adventures driving a cattle herd from Texas to Montana. The novel explores themes of old age, death, unrequited love, and friendship, while examining the sacrifices made by those who chose a life of adventure over convention. An especially fitting book for those traveling to the Greater Yellowstone region who are looking for an entertaining read.
