 Scholarly text presents the first comprehensive account of the early history of Estes Park, Colorado, the 'gem of the Rockies'. In this enthralling narrative, James H Pickering traces the development of Estes Park as a mountain resort community from 1859, when Joel Estes first saw it, to the establishment of Rocky Mountain National Park in 1915. Though Estes and his family stayed only briefly, others quickly followed: hunters, homesteading settlers, lumbermen, mountaineers, artists, writers, and holidaymakers. They came for many reasons: for settlement, exploration, and exploitation, later for escape, health, recreation, and renewal. Their collective experiences and accomplishments -- their successes as well as their failures -- are chronicled in this book.
