Massachusetts newspaper editor Samuel Bowles visited the mountains of Colorado in 1868 and described his travels there in a series of letters sent back to his paper, the Springfield Republican. The letters were later published as a book, which informed many in the eastern U.S. of the beauty of the Colorado Rockies. That book is republished here, in a modern edition, edited by James H. Pickering, who supplies an introduction and notes. Includes numerous black & white photos and a map. --- In full green cloth, with titling stamped in silver to spine.
