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.
