Have you ever dreamed of owning a mountain hideaway without any neighbors and traffic to disturb you? Have you ever thought you could live in almost total silence outside except for the occasional tweeting of a bird’s call or the sound of a jet engine? Have you seen the brilliant sun set over a rugged mountain terrain casting a colorful spectacle in the sky rivaling any Georgia O’Keefe painting? Author James Hughes does; Living in Custer County is the story of his new life in his mountain home.
Hughes, now a retired university professor, spent many years of his life travelling to exotic locations with USAID to work on educational projects. From Pakistan to Kenya, he experienced many cultures and was fortunate to work in many different environments. Through all of his rich experiences, he knew that he wanted to spend his retirement years in a quieter place. That place is Custer County, Colorado. His new challenge became one of adjusting to a rural mountain town, in the USA.
In Living in Custer County, he has included charming vignettes that introduce you to his friends and the places that make Custer County his senior citizen dividend.
