Angle of Repose

By: Stegner, Wallace
Price: $16.00

Penguin Books, New York, 1971-1992. Robert's favorite book of all time (so far). A great story of aging and independence, with an inner story of the narrator's grandparents, and their story in America's frontier mining west. This book has the best description of early day life in a mining camp of any book I've read, and the camp is Leadville, CO. Great still for book clubs, Pulitzer Prize winner. Paperback, 569 pages.
