Detailed Product Description
Portland, 1892, 2md "Souvenir" edition. 112 pp.  The author’s stated aim in writing this work was to provide descriptions of Mount Hood and Crater Lake. He calls the latter ‘one of the grandest points of interest on earth. Here all the ingenuity of nature seems to have been exerted to the fullest capacity, to build one grand, awe-inspiring temple’ (p. 33). In addition there are details of the formation and constitution of the Oregon Alpine Club, predecessor of the Mazamas, together with short biographies of its first three presidents. At the end is an Oregon bibliography.
 
The only book by this explorer, who was also dubbed 'The Father of Crater Lake National Park'. Includes chapters on Crater Lake, the Oregon Alpine Club, Mount Hood, Mount Rainier, and the Josephine County Caves -- among others. ". This little volume has not been written with the expectation of accomplishing a mission, or even attracting general attention, but simply to put into permanent form a small portion of information that is constantly appearing in newspaper articles. Such information usually comes from abler pens than mine, but it is all the more pity that it is not in proper shape for future use. If it amuses, entertains, or instructs those who peruse it, its aim will be accomplished, and its author satisfied. It was begun in response to numerous requests received for descriptions of Crater Lake and Mt. Hood." -- From the author's Preface. Paperback, Near Fine condition.
