Here’s a fascinating interview with Roland Cheek, a local writer and long-time outfitter in the Bob Marshall Wilderness . . .
Roland Cheek clung to his dream even when his tenacity caused marital strife, threatened his family’s financial stability, lodged him crosswise with the U.S. Forest Service and pushed him to the edge of exhaustion.
Adversity made regular visits during his early years as an outfitter and guide in the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
Roland embraced tenacity again later when he decided to become a writer, even though he had limited formal education and had twice flunked English in high school.
