Detailed Product Description
Ohio, 1993. 118 pp, b/w illustrations. Paperback. New in shrink wrap.

At 14,110 feet, the weather station at Pikes Peak, Colorado, was the highest in the world in 1873. Young men trained by the Signal Corps took turns living year-round on the isolated mountain, where they endured loneliness, primitive living conditions, lack of financial support and appreciation, and deteriorating health. Fascinating look at the lives of these Signal Corps trainees.
