Photographer Todd Winslow Pierce was on hand for a book signing of Living Beneath the Colorado Peaks, a fascinating story of the Knapp Ranch, whose owners, Betsy and Bud Knapp, were dedicated to the design, history, conservation and appreciation of the Rocky Mountain Landscape. The book, written by Sarah Chase Shaw, won the Western Heritage Award for Outstanding Photography Book of 2019, awarded by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Sprinkled throughout the book are indelible stories of the Knapps’ relationships with a cadre of designers and builders who pursued historical methods and artistry embedded in every detail of the ranch.
