This blue hollow : Estes Park, the early years, 1859-1915 by James H Pickering( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This Blue Hollow" is 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 vacationers. 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."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's Switzerland, a companion volume to "This Blue Hollow," is the first comprehensive history of Rocky Mountain National Park and its neighboring town, Estes Park, during the decades when travel became a middle-class rite of summer. Drawing on a wide variety of primary sources and extensive archival research, James H. Pickering reveals how the evolution of tourism and America's fascination with the "western experience" shaped the park and town from 1903 to 1945."

The Rocky Mountain National Park reader( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writer Wallace Stegner once wrote that 'No place is a place until things that have happened in it are remembered.' This collection celebrates one of America's most loved places, Rocky Mountain National Park, which marked its 100th birthday in 2015. Engagement with place and the park's history loom large in the thirty-three selections that make up this anthology which reach back to Arapaho and pioneer times before the park was established and span its entire first century. The voices that speak to us are distinctive: some recall moments of personal triumph, others tell of mountain tragedies. Some are quiet or reflective, still others more polemic. All capture and share a part of the national treasure that is Rocky Mountain National Park. This original collection is a rich literary and historical compendium that provides an indispensable introduction to the nation's twelfth national park"--
