BeschreibungPerk Vickers was born in Lake City, Colorado in 1914 and has lived there all his life, never desiring to be anywhere else. His father, John, arrived in Lake City in 1888 when Grover Cleveland was president and Colorado had only been a state for twelve years. Perk has always felt a connection with, and a deep respect for, this special place, which he has described as being "about as close to heaven as a man can get." Perk Vickers is a student of history and a consummate Irish storyteller. He has been a rancher, miner, politician, business owner, heavy machinery operator, developer, and much more. A Sense of Place is the story of a special man, a close-knit family, a way of life, the changes experienced throughout an entire century, and a special place in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Colorado.
