It's Monday, What are You Reading? The Magnificent Mountain Women

It's Monday, What are You Reading?
The Magnificent Mountain Women:
Adventures in the Colorado Rockies
by Janet Robertson
This post is the one-hundred and ninth entry for this meme suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books. [Entries 22-25 in the series were posted at  the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories] (1990 edition)(I read) (2003 2nd Edition)

This has been sitting on my shelf for years, picked up in Colorado at the bookstore one year.
Good read… shouldn’t have waited so long!! ;-)

Book Description from Amazon:

1st Edition:
Adventures in the Colorado Rockies. Lively well illustrated book on women climbers, skiers, hikers, guides, doctors, etc. in the 54 Colorado peaks.

2nd Edition:
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.

Happy Reading!

Dr. Bill  ;-)
