The e-book info:

Evelyn Walker, 22 and fresh out of college, steps into an adventure of a lifetime when she leaves her hometown of Chattanooga for the first time by herself to live in the exceptionally mountainous land of Aspen, Colorado. A lover of the great outdoors and an aspiring writer, Evelyn spends her year away journeying throughout the Rocky Mountains, whether on foot or on skis; whether alone or with John, the young man she meets and falls in love with while out West. She keeps journals throughout her journey that document the true beauty, freedom, and love she experiences; as well as the true trial and loss she must endure while in the mountains. The dilemma is Evelyn becomes so enamored by the adventure and passion of her new world, and love in John, that she does not realize she is getting stuck in a place where she does not belong, until it is nearly too late. On her voyage, Evelyn climbs to the top of sky scraping peaks, skis the most extreme slopes, traverses the high desert, and loves with all of her heart. On her voyage, she experiences the loss of loved ones, serious injury, deep conviction about her destiny, and the profound transformation that gets her back on the course she was created to take. 51 Weeks: The Unfinished Journey is the completed compilation of the journals Evelyn kept during this voyage, a voyage so extraordinary it must be told.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...
