Abstract:

Nestled high in the Colorado Rocky headwaters of the Rio Grande near Creede, Colorado, lies a ranch of spectacular beauty, the 4UR. Known for its natural splendor and world-class fly fishing, the 4UR ranch is famous for both its colorful owners and the variety of its distinguished guests who have visited over the years. Max Evans's unique work, This Chosen Place, tells the story of the 4UR by blending history and natural history with a biographical portrait of the 4UR's.

Current owner, Charles Leavell. The story of the 4UR realm is one of inspiration and place: Its lands were prized by the Ute Indians for hunting and fishing, battled over by Spanish leaders such as de Vargas, traversed by Fremont and other explorers, sought after for its mineral wealth, and now are the setting for a resort that beckons travellers from around the world.
