In U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s new book, he details his journey from Colorado to Washington, D.C., and the nation’s highest court. He writes that, “every day brought a new surprise” during the process of his nomination and confirmation. One such experience is recounted in this excerpt from the upcoming book, “A Republic, If You Can Keep It.” 


Only days earlier, I was happily living on a quiet country road called Lookout Ridge outside Niwot, Colorado, a little town named for a great Arapaho chief. Yes, I had written hundreds of judicial decisions over the last decade, sitting on an appellate court that serves about 20 percent of the continental United States. But few people outside of legal circles knew who I was.
