Ozark Mountain Publishing announced the release of “Where the Weeds Grow” by Colorado author Curt Melliger.

“Where the Weeds Grow” is a selection of Melliger’s essays about subjects ranging from the simplest of all to the most sublime, from the wonders of water, rock and moonlight to the miracle of existence, the mystery of death and the possibility of returning to heaven early.

The book explores ocean, desert and mountain, places that are not on any map and the unmowed corner of a backyard, as well as adrenaline rushes, near-death experiences and “impossible” coincidences.

Melliger spent many years traveling around North America by thumb, freight train, old vehicles and on foot. During his travels, he wrote down his experiences and used them as inspiration for his writing. He currently lives in Southwest Colorado.
