520    "I have talked about luscious wines and succulent fruit 
       and exquisite dinners. But there may be no more evocative 
       experience of the two valleys than the smell of new-mown 
       hay in the fields at dusk. If a person were to close their
       eyes, they could not tell if they were in Provence or the 
       North Fork Valley. That sweet, earthy odor is part of the 
       beauty of these places."--An American Provence In this 
       poetic personal narrative, Thomas P. Huber reflects on two
       seemingly unrelated places-the North Fork Valley in 
       western Colorado and the Coulon River Valley in Provence, 
       France-and finds a shared landscape and sense of place. 
       What began as a simple comparison of two like places in 
       distant locations turned into a more complex, interesting,
       and personal task. Much is similar-the light, the valleys,
       the climate, the agriculture. And much is less so-the 
       history, the geology, the physical makeup of villages. 
       Using a geographer's eye and passion for the land and 
       people, Huber examines the regions' similarities and 
       differences to explore the common emotional impact of each
       region. Part intimate travelogue and part case study of 
       geography in the real world, An American Provence 
       illuminates the importance sense of place plays in who we
