Smoke Signals: A Reading and Book Signing with Author M. John Fayhee

Friday, October 5, 2012 | 7:00 – 9:00PM

Ken Sanders Rare Books is pleased to announce a reading and book signing with M. John Fayhee on Friday, October 5th at 7:00PM at our downtown bookstore (268 South 200 East, Salt Lake City). Copies of Fayhee’s new book "Smoke Signals: Wayward Journeys through the Old Heart of the New West" will be available for signing and purchase at the event ($22, Paperback, Raven’s Eye Press).

M. John Fayhee’s wayward wanderings have seen him illegally backpacking through the world’s deepest gorge in China, paddling across crocodile-infested waters in a leaky Zodiac in the Dominican Republic, rafting the Chattooga River with the banjo-playing boy from Deliverance and coming face-to-face with a giant statue of Christ in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. Fayhee has recounted many of these off-the-social-grid mis-adventures in this monthly “Smoke Signals” column for the Mountain Gazette, of which he is the editor. Fayhee has distilled his favorite “Smoke Signals” tales into this rollicking and thoughtful little tome.

Fayhee’s travels have taken him to five continents. He has hiked the Appalachian, Colorado, and Arizona trails, as well as the Colorado section of the Continental Divide Trail. He has stood atop the summits of 27 of Colorado’s Fourteeners, but has since repented and promises to stand atop no more. In 2000, along with two partners, Fayhee helped re-launch the iconic Mountain Gazette, where he still works as editor-in-chief. After 24 years living in the Colorado High Country, Fayhee moved back to his old stomping grounds in Southwest New Mexico, where he lives in warmth and sunshine with his wife, Gay Gangel-Fayhee, his little dog, Casey, and his very weird cat, Tucker.
