Poetry and Reflections of a Wandering Man – Random Thoughts

Poetry and Reflections of a Wandering Man Random Thoughts

Kurt James also known as The Colorado Storyteller is the master of western adventure of the Rocky Mountains. Here is a collection of his poetry and reflections he has penned from his wanderings of the mountain frontier below and above timberline. In this collection of random thoughts Kurt touches on all that makes us human – love, death, dogs, nature, beauty, laughter, sadness and of course the Rocky Mountains.

Kurt once said, “Sometimes I feel out of place, a man out of time. I long for the simpler times of the forgotten past. I have lived in Colorado most of my life but also lived in western South Dakota for almost 20 years. Not a day goes by that nature, mountains, and the wilderness do not speak to me. Give me an hour alone with my camera, 4 wheel drive Jeep, my dog and I am at peace looking for my next photo opportunity or a place among the aspen and evergreen tree to write a novel or a poem or two. These are my words, my reflections of my wanderings.”

“This book is much more personal to me than anything else I have ever written. I almost did not release it because of the many memories that it holds of those that I love and have lost.”

    Congratulation on the release of this book of poetry Kurt. I am inspired by the talent you have for promoting your work as well. I have trouble even with the formatting to turn my work into a book, let alone promotion.

    Thank you, John… The promotion s a lot of work, but I actually enjoy that almost as much as I love writing.
