Book Description from Amazon:
Adventures in the Colorado Rockies. Lively well illustrated book on women climbers, skiers, hikers, guides, doctors, etc. in the 54 Colorado peaks.
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.
