“When I first came into the country of the Philmont Scout Ranch, it was from a world where a life-span was something that came in a neat package, precisely styled and sealed in plastic. Adventure then was some quality that had left with the older days, something that people could now only try to know in fiction or maybe experience from a pill.” — from Head For The High Country
Dave Caffey’s account of his summers on the Philmont staff was originally published in 1973, and it was an immediate hit with both campers, advisors, and staff. The Philmont Staff Association is pleased to bring this now classic account of the Philmont Staff experience to a new generation. This 35th anniversary edition includes the original foreword by Philmont’s legendary Director of Camping Joe Davis, as well as a new introduction by the author.
