Tales about a lifetime of living near the edge are related on these pages, presented with plainspoken words that don’t need underlining. From being shot down in Laos to meeting a prehistoric family, it’s all here in untainted color. Forrest admits to making his share of mistakes but whispers that, even at age 83, none have weakened his ardor for the chase.
Accompanying Forrest for this event will be authors Michael McGarrity and Douglas Preston. The three will be in conversation.
After retiring from the Air Force in 1970, Forrest Fenn built an art gallery in Santa Fe that he and his wife ran for seventeen years. Since retiring again in 1988, his energies have been directed toward excavation of a large Indian pueblo and writing books about art and exploration. He is the author of Thrill of the Chase, which was voted by the readers of the Santa Fe Reporter as the best local book of 2013. The Thrill of the Chase, has been featured in various media throughout the world, including The Today Show, Good Morning America, The NBC Nightly News, Newsweek, StudioCanal+, and many more.
