The Magnificent Mountain Women
Adventures in the Colorado RockiesBook - 1990
Since the Pikes Peak gold rush in the mid--nineteenth century, women have gone into the mountains of Colorado to hike, climb, ski, homestead, botanize, act as guides, practice medicine, and meet a variety of other challenges, whether for sport or for livelihood. Janet Robertson recounts their exploits in a lively, well-illustrated book that measures up to its title, The Magnificent Mountain Women . Arlene Blum provides a new introduction to this edition.
