Read full description of the books:
"Abbott and Rushforth [have a] knack for entertaining readers."
"Ride along with Sam and Scott through spectacular landscape and share their vast knowledge of its many plants and creatures and the way their lives—and ours—turn with each new season."
—Chip Ward, author of Canaries on the Rim: Living Downwind in the West
"It's like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance meets Desert Solitaire in Utah County."
—Scott Carrier, author of Running After Antelope
"Come fall in wonder with nature and humankind as these two scholars and mountain bike enthusiasts explore flora, fauna and the follies of life, love, friendship and aging. Abbott and Rushforth are brash and beautiful, their observations clear–eyed, precise and soulful. By the end of the ride you’ll understand more about Utah’s landscape and two men’s hearts than you ever imagined."
—Brooke Adams, former editor of the Salt Lake Observer and Salt Lake Tribune reporter
"Sometimes you have to get on the bike and go out with the wild things if you're going to get there at all. Scott Abbott and Sam Rushforth show us the way. Mount up. Here's our ticket to ride."
—Charles Bowden, author of Blues for Cannibals
"Following the conversations and adventures of Scott and Sam in this work was a delight—my only complaint is that I was stung by an absolute desire to join them. The gusto and passion they have for this land comes through on every page."
—Steven L. Peck, author of The Scholar of Moab and A Short Stay in Hell
"Imagine Plato’s Phaedrus and a field guide to Utah fauna and flora left in an inside pocket of a sweaty, oft-used CamelBak get acquainted and copulate. The wise progeny, scratched and scented, philosophizing its way out, would be Wild Rides and Wildflowers, coauthored by Scott Abbott and Sam Rushforth."
—Larry Menlove, for The Provo Canyon Review
