The bold peaks of the Mission Mountains crown a wilderness range unique in the West both in majesty and management. Soaring more than a mile above the farms and villages of the Mission Valley, the austere western front of the Missions forms one of the most striking mountain valleys in the Rockies. But the range is more than a natural wonder. It is the first place in America in which an Indian nation has matched the federal government in dedicating tribal lands as a wilderness preserve. The Mission Mountains are two wilderness areas in one, divided along the crest of the…

And while her body slowly bowed over time, her voice retained its distinctive, enchanting warble, closing each episode with a cheery, “Bon appetit!” From the first time I saw Child on public television’s “The French Chef” - tall, confident, cooking her way through all manner of foods exotic to a girl in elementary school…
