"Colorado author Mark Sundeen, whose books include The Man Who Quit Money and North by Northwestern, which was a New York Times and The Wall Street Journal bestseller, will present The Unsettlers: In Search of the Good Life in Today's America ($26.00 Riverhead). The Tattered Cover V.I.B. (very impressive book) selection for January, The Unsettlers is a work of immersive journalism steeped in a distinctively American social history and sparked by a personal quest. Sundeen's book traces the search for the simple life, through the stories of three very different couples, and through the visionaries, ascetics, and artists who inspired them to walk away from the life they knew in order to find (or create) a better existence. Captivating and clear-eyed, The Unsettlers dares us to imagine what a sustainable, ethical, authentic future might actually look like."
