Welcome to Jimtown
Welcome to Jimtown is an imagined expedition through the lives of the wildlife and people living in a real mountain town near Boulder, Colorado. Straddling the human-animal divide, the story takes the reader into the world of a group of wilderness animals, with Burnee, a Black Bear, assuming the role of lead provocateur. The result is a series of whimsical adventures centered around the animals’ innovative ways of finding food, fun, and security. Along the way, they take on life’s challenges, whether they be the distressful behavior of their mischievous offspring or the dilemma of a wild turkey who wants to become the family pet.
