Über diesen Titel:
Captured by the author are the life experiences and insights of 18 remarkable lookouts. Their stories are fascinating and often humorous. The many photographs show views of the landscape that are breathtaking, but the lookouts share views on life that etch equally deep impressions.
Throughout the book, readers are entertained and inspired --- entertained by vicariously experiencing unique adventures, and inspired by refreshingly clear-sighted perspectives that light new paths for the journey through life.
These intrepid guardians of our national forests have reached the top - but by climbing a much different ladder. Now it's a ladder they enjoy climbing every day.
Über den Autor: Joe Bill was brought up in the small town of Arcadia in western Wisconsin and lived in Rochester, Minnesota during his early working career. His love of hiking the wooded hills of that area was transformed into a passion for hiking the mountains of Arizona after moving to Fountain Hills in 1987. In the process, he became fascinated with the diversity of the Southwest - its climate, terrain, people, cultures, and lifestyles.
Over the years, numerous visits with different lookouts in their fire towers yielded some entertaining and thought-provoking conversations. Their views from the towers were breathtaking, but their views on life etched equally deep impressions. In the course of their life journeys, the lookouts reached the top, but by climbing a much different ladder. And so the idea was born for his book, Climbing the Ladder Less Traveled.
Joe’s professional career has been devoted entirely to healthcare where he served in a number of marketing and administrative roles. When asked about his visits in fire towers on so many mountaintops, Joe says it is one of his greatest life journeys and adds in jest that he has never worked at a ‘higher level.’ Although bitten by a rattlesnake and stung by a scorpion, his love of the outdoors remains undeterred.
