Beschreibung

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.

Portrait

A professional photographer and writer whose work has appeared in many magazines, Janet Robertson lives in Boulder, Colorado. She has climbed all fifty-four of Colorado's peaks topping fourteen thousand feet and has hiked the length of the Colorado Trail. Arlene Blum has played a leading role in more than twenty successful mountaineering expeditions, including the first American climb of Annapurna. She is the author of "Annapurna: A Woman's Place."

Pressestimmen

"Janet Robertson, herself a climber and skier, has done remarkable research, culling anecdotes from letters, journals, and old newspapers, and bringing back to life more than sixty adventurous women who braved skepticism and hardship to experience the challenge and beauty of the Rockies." Booklist "The use of ... original source materials, together with the many photographs, lends a ringing authenticity to the book. Then, too, as author Robertson explains, it was time to write it. 'For the sad truth is that most of the women in this book are unknown or by now forgotten. I think it is an undeserved fate for such magnificent women. It's time to set the record straight.' And reading these fascinating stories, we can only agree." Smithsonian
