520 2 |a "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"--  |c Provided by publisher.
