One requires a tolerance for cold and a degree of suffering most people would prefer to pass up; the other involves cozy accommodations, light packs and comfy mattresses. Both usually include spectacular winter scenery and close friends.</p><p> Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:42:23 +0000 Will Roush 12882 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Of Fire Tents and Hut Trips Colleges Across the Country Using the Book "Slums of Aspen" http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/colleges-across-country-using-book-slums-aspen <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">A book that looks at environmental crises, immigration and social inequality in the Roaring Fork Valley is being taught in college classrooms across the country. </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">The Slums of Aspen</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> was published by New York University Press in 2011.
