Evans is a celebrated author, journalist and Boulder native who worked closely with McGuckin owners Dave and Dee Hight, as well as the cast of eccentric characters that made up the store’s legacy, to paint the picture of a local hardware store’s transition from modest sporting goods and fishing shop to community-centric icon.
