A Vision of Architectural Design and Land Stewardship

Living Beneath the Colorado Peaks takes the reader on a journey of discovery, from finding the perfect piece of land to achieving a vision that provides a model for utilizing the existing natural systems to design and craft a model of integrative, creative, and responsible land use in the American West.

With vision, patience and devotion to excellence, the book follows the journey of Bud and Betsy Knapp to rehabilitate a landscape fatigued by neglect. Built on the bedrock of sustainability and thoughtful stewardship, the Ranch, located at 9,000 feet in Colorado’s Vail Valley is thriving; an inspiration and successful example of land management best practices.

Betsy and Bud Knapp, original owners and former publishers of Architectural Digest and Bon Appetit magazines, are innovators, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs. Writer and landscape architect Sarah Chase Shaw is the author of two residential landscape architecture books. Todd Winslow Pierce is a photographer based in Vail, Colorado.

For every person who has experienced the beauty of the mountains and felt humbled by comparison.


John Muir’s Our National Parks—reissued to encourage, and inspire travelers, campers, and contemporary naturalists—is as profound for readers today as it was in 1901.


Take in John Muir’s detailed observations of the sights, scents, sounds, and textures of Yosemite, Yellowstone, and forest reservations of the West. Be reminded (as Muir sagely puts), “Wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”


John Muir’s warmth, humor, and passionate advocacy for these public lands is enough to spur any reader on to plan a National Parks adventure of their own.
