Finn Murphy -- "Rocky Mountain High"

Finn Murphy will speak about and sign his new book, Rocky Mountain High: A Tale of Boom and Bust in the New Wild West, with Boulder Bookstore's Arsen Kashkashian and KGNU's Maeve Conran in a live recording of the Boulder Bookstore and KGNU Radio Book Club on Thursday, June 22nd at 6:30pm at Boulder Bookstore. Tickets for this event are $5 (plus a small processing fee) and are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.

About the Book:
After decades as a long-haul trucker, Finn Murphy left the road and settled in Boulder County, Colorado. Before long he noticed that many of his neighbors were captivated by the prospect of vast riches in “the Hemp Space.” When hemp was legalized, after eighty years in federal exile, Colorado became the center of a hemp growing and processing boom. Figuring he’d harvest some of that easy money, Murphy bought a thirty-six-acre farm. What could go wrong? Well, pretty much everything...

Rocky Mountain High is the comic chronicle of a wild year as Murphy follows his Great American Dream, gradually losing his shirt but not his spirit. Told with Murphy’s trademark wit, keen eye for character, and sharp insights into the hardscrabble society around him, Rocky Mountain High is an inside look at the alluring world of the hemp boom and a masterful tale of one entrepreneur’s misadventures.
