Detailed Product Description
CO, 1984, 1st edition. 112 pp, color & b/w photos. History, primarily  climbing. Tall softcover, Near Fine. 
 
The highest point in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park, Longs Peak has the most interesting history of any western mountain. From its 'discovery' by Major Stephen Long in 1820, to the first recorded ascent by John Wesley Powell in 1868, to a twentieth century filled with mountaineering feats, the story of Longs Peak shines with rejuvenating spirit and fascinating fact. At 14,255 feet, it rises high above the cities along the base of the Front Range, offering hikers the opportunity for refuge and climbers the challenge of The Diamond.

Longs Peak: A Rocky Mountain Chronicle celebrates this mountain without bounds. Trimble's text spans a major sweep of the West: the raising of the Rockies, the great Ice Age, tundra and forest ecology, and a history peopled with some remarkable characters. Isabella Bird summed up Longs Peak over a century ago: she believed it was 'much more than a mountain.' Trimble proves her right.
 
 
On the back cover of this book is a quote from Harold Dunning, 1930: 'To tell all that one can see from the top of Longs Peak would be telling too much, so you must climb it yourself...' That is true. Yet even those who have climbed Longs Peak, or attempted to do so, love to read about it. To such people, this book was dedicated. Trimble writes with passion and understanding about a subject he obviously loves.
