Outdoor survivalist discusses latest novel

-A A +A

Reading > Talk will begin 7 p.m. today in MPL’s upstairs rotunda.

Mesa Public Library’s “Quotes: The Authors Speak Series,” presents Tom Harmer, a lifelong student of natural history, outdoor survival and native practices in the wild, will read from his most recent book, “A Walk Around the Horizon: Discovering New Mexico’s Mountains of the Four Direction.”
The talk will begin 7 p.m. today at the library’s upstairs rotunda.
Near Santa Fe, landscape is framed by four high mountains — Sandia to the south, Chicoma to the west, Canjilon to the north, and Truchas to the east.
Although they are sacred to the Tewa Pueblo Indians, the four peaks are in different bureaucratic and cultural zones, which means that each peak attracts visitors but few non-Indian travelers visit more than one of the mountains. In 2010, at the age of 62, Harmer resolved to climb all four of these mountains in one summer.
His chronicle offers a view of a montane forest unlike any in the world, where mountain, plain and desert biota converge.
Harmer’s writing is shaped by years of living off the land, especially the nearly 10 years spent with a band of Salish Indians, which he documented in his previous books :Going Native” and “What I’ve Always Known: Living in Full Awareness of the Earth.”
