Hiking the Appalachian Trail changed Robert Moor’s life. In his book On Trails: An Exploration (Simon & Schuster), he examines trails in all their forms—from paths cut by insects, by animals, and finally by people. Books & Beats contributor Betsy Burton says Moor’s “hard science is detailed, his social science intriguing—and his philosophical conclusions about humankind’s place in the natural world deeply thoughtful, carving a trail for the reader out of the chaos of the unknown.”
It takes a lot hard work, adaptability, and, of course, great artistry to stay relevant in the music world decade of after decade. A couple musicians who’ve done just that are coming to Utah soon.
