What another journalist has to say about HCN:
"High Country News is a rich resource for those among us who long to hear the voices of the West. The stories and commentaries are always well-written, with strong regional flavor, by knowledgeable professionals, and prepared and presented by editors with high standards."
Barbara Ellis, Denver Post News Editor
THANKS for splendid, challenging, exciting work, from two dinosaurs among your countless fans.

Carol Neuhoff is hooked on HCN!
"My brother gave me a gift subscription to your outstanding magazine last Christmas. It's a proud, surprising, eloquent, and pertinent tribute ... every single issue. Thank you for emphasizing the passion for the West over the mere politics. I'm hooked!"
