I've never heard of the kid (kids?). Is he a big hiker or something?

So I looked it up. http://www.houseofrain.com/theauthor.cfm

Seems like he might be an interesting fellow.
Childs is an Arizona native, and he grew up back and forth between there and Colorado, son of a mother hooked on outdoor adventure, and a dad who liked whiskey, guns, and Thoreau. He has worked as a gas station attendant, wilderness guide, professional musician, and a beer bottler, though now he is primarily a writer. He lives off the grid in Western Colorado.
Occasionally I consider the possibility of reading something longer than a toughboots triplog. And then reality hits me again. Nah. Not my thing.

The talk might be good though. :)

Well crap because of our son and his visit timing, tonight is off. I just knew 37 years ago having a kid would one day spoil my plans.

Craig's writing is amazing! I think "the secret knowledge of water" and "animal dialogs" are my favorites. And his Facebook is pretty fun too.

His books and adventures are great...he's a real favorite of mine. But I'm a pretty poor fan (except for that one time I went to Alston's lecture). One time I did take a pi$$ next to Guy Clark while waiting for his concert to start.

We all got something. I forgot to mention that Jack Nicklaus stepped on my brother's foot....in golf shoes...when he was fat.

I thought about adding that clarifying clause but figured I'd already inexcusably damaged this thread.....

Personally, I love threads that go off-topic. But then we have the PURISTS who disagree. :D

Here's one for a somewhat related, but still a bit off-topic discussion:

What is it about people getting autographs from other people? I mean, like full-grown adults.

I think there was a line of people an hour long after the talk last night. Seriously. And people waited that time for another human person to write his name in the pages of a book they already have his words permanently written in.

I understand wanting to experience/share in somebody else's gift or talent: watch an athlete play, or an artist perform, or especially to have a personal conversation with somebody whose thoughts and ideas you admire or respect.

But I absolutely don't understand the autograph thing.

A first edition book is worth more for resale with an autograph. I have books signed by Edward Abbey, Katie Lee, Janice Emily Bowers, Betty Leavengood, Tom Martin, Patricia McCairen, Brad Dimock, etc. All are SW nonfiction writers. I also know a couple of them.

If you are really into southwest nonfiction authors you will have heard of Craig Childs, and these others. He's been around for many years. If that genre isn't your thing, then he'd be pretty unknown. It's very much a niche market.

This basically reiterates my question but certainly doesn’t answer it.

I don’t understand why people place value on somebody else’s autograph.

Now if you could explain to me the reasoning behind why you have all those signed books I’d probably gain some insight to something I don’t really get.

I wouldn't mind knowing how the event was. Kyle? Too specific to the original topic? Did anyone actually attend? I like his work, although I haven't read a lot of it. Mostly in AZ highways
