One Book Steamboat kicks off with book scavenger hunt


One Book Steamboat kicks off Monday with a scavenger hunt for 10 free copies of Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried,” which are hidden across Steamboat Springs. Here are the clues:

  1. Search the place Post 44 patriots find one another.
  2. In 1899, members gathered to share medical benefits and pensions following the Spanish-American War. In 2012, they gather to share a beer.
  3. Countless histories of the Vietnam War have been written. Peruse them.
  4. Once a power house, now a power lunch.
  5. Pass the high flying flag to the place where history is recorded.
  6. The water temp is perfect for tea, but the minerals might make it taste like the sea.
  7. Mekong floats, mountain treks, culinary tours and history rides. Start planning your trip here.
  8. Devour Hanoi’s favorite street food here.
  9. Seek the beauty advice of Vietnamese women.
  10. Clippings, photos, stories and mementos vast; this is Steamboat’s place to archive the past.
