Leland lives in the middle of a beautiful nowhere that is Colorado's San Luis Valley. Angelo, the world famous Border Collie, and Maggie, his black Lab philosopher mix, allow him to share their off-grid home. All three tolerate The Cat who does a merely adequate job of rodent control.
Leland has built the majority of the 1800 square foot all-solar home over almost four years, but is grateful to friends and neighbors who have helped with some of the heavy lifting. You can find him on facebook at www.facebook.com/LelandDirks.
Leland and Angelo have collaborated on several other works, including the best selling Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home and a novel entitled Jimmy Mender and His Miracle Dog.
