Rocky Mountain National Park(1995)
A 100 Year Perspective
A non fiction book by T A Barron, John Fielder and Enos Mills
Rocky Mountain National Park is the spiritual heart of the southern Rocky Mountains, an alpine domain as lush as it is austere, as friendly as it is intimidating. The grandeur of its mountain peaks, the profusion of flowering plant life, and ubiquity of creeks, cascades, and waterfalls creates a setting unique on our planet. Despite its three million annual visitors and its proximity to sprawling urban communities, Rocky Mountain National Park remains as natural and wild as any national park in the continental United States. This book offers a unique perspective--a look at the park one hundred years ago and a record of it today, as we approach the twenty-first century. It is about a place that exists not only on the map, but also in the hearts of the American people. Through the eyes of John Fielder and the words of one of its finest nature writers, T. A. Barron, the majesty of Rocky Mountain National Park is revealed as never before. The historical photographs and writings of Enos Mills, founder of the park, lend rare insight into one of nature's last great places. Rocky Mountain National Park: A 100 Year Perspective is not just a book, but an enduring experience certain to renew your relationship with places natural and wild.
