An account of Ouray County, Ridgway, and the unexpected and uninvited external forces that suddenly descended on a sleepy agricultural community where three generations of farmers and ranchers had tended to their crops and livestock through the rhythms of the seasons. Today, a new traffic light signals, "go" to new Hummer's and other fancy Sports Utility Vehicles where once, pick-up trucks ambled slowly through the one main street in Ridgway. Fast food restaurants have found a home in Ridgway, not many but one or two, enough to send a sign to residents that change is here to stay. Change is inevitable. How folks deal with it is something else. This letter from Ridgway was written by a reformed New Yorker and tells the story of his love affair with the West, his reconciliation with change, and his thoughts on the future.

Peter Decker has had a varied careermerchant seaman, army officer, war correspondent for the Associated Press in Vietnam and Laos, college professor, rancher, and government official.

Currently, Decker is a director of the National Western Stock Show, and he continues to operate his cattle ranch in Ridgway, Colorado.
