STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A new book reflecting the remarkable beauty of Colorado’s high country, especially around Toponas and South Routt, will be featured at a special book signing on Saturday.

Authors George and Ruth Krauss, of Toponas and Lakewood, wrote “Toponas Cabin Journals,” based on their compiled entries that document over 30 years of material offering autobiographical views of life around south Routt County.

The book will be featured during a launch party and signing from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Krauss Ranch, 36505 Colorado Highway 134 in Toponas.

According to the Buonpane Publications press release, the hundreds of journal entries by family and friends paint a picture of life adventures throughout the changing seasons in aspen and sagebrush country, including many hunting sagas as well as the learning experiences of building a home in mountain country.

In addition, the book includes a section of favorite “cabin recipes” that provide a tasty conclusion to a far-ranging and personal look at life in a seldom-described area of Colorado.

For further information about this event or to purchase “Toponas Cabin Journals,” call 303-674-0670.
