Detailed Product Description


Longs Peak


Wilson Peak

We just received a few copies of this wonderful new book by John Fielder, and they are SIGNED by John Fielder and Jeri Norgren, photographer and author. 

This book was so successful that Fielder issued a 2nd edition. However we have new copies of the O.P. First Edition. This is not available anywhere else. 

CO, 2020, 1st edition. 160 pp, large format color photos, paintings, maps, plus Hayden Survey and W.H. Jackson ills. Book is a large format hardcover with dust jacket, 12'' x 9''. New. The color pictorial images are printed on the book itself, so no dust jacket was issued.


SIGNED by John Fielder & Jeri Norgren 

One of the classiest books ever done on our beloved fourteeners.

This may be John Fielder's finest history book since the popular Colorado 1870-2000 series of W.H. Jackson photography books. Author Jeri Norgren has written fascinating text about just how the names were chosen for the 58 highest mountains in Colorado, and who first climbed them.

Through extensive research of the early days of mining in Colorado, and the voluminous records of the Hayden Surveys of Colorado in the 1870s, Norgren has written what may prove to be a classic Colorado history book. But it's not only words.  It is illustrated with Fielder's photographs of the fourteeners, many never before published, and Robert L. Wogrin's sublime oil paintings and sketches. Also shown are the historical sketches made in the 1870s by the artists of the Hayden Survey. These men climbed the peaks and sketched the mountains from on high.

This is a large format hardcover book and we will request extra postage for Priority Mail and International Mail.

About the Authors

John Fielder has worked tirelessly to promote the protection of Colorado's ranches, open space, and wildlands during his 40-year career as a nature photographer and publisher. His photography has influenced people and legislation and has earned him recognition that includes the 1993 Sierra Club Ansel Adams Award; in 2011, the Aldo Leopold Foundation s first Achievement Award ever given to an individual; and in 2017, Colorado Mountain College presented him an Honorary Degree in Sustainability Studies. Fifty-two books of his have been published depicting his Colorado photography. He lives in Summit County, Colorado.

Jeri L. Norgren is a fifth generation Colorado native. Having spent most of her life exploring the mountains and all the wonders they hold, she became fascinated with the nomenclature of the highest peaks and began her journey. As a member of the Denver Fortnightly Club, she has authored numerous papers on various topics, including one that grew into this book.

What is a Fourteener? 

It is no longer sufficient to measure the highest point around and when your altimeter says it is over 14,000 feet, you just climbed a ''Fourteener.'' Or that it is a 4000 meter peak in the Alps, or an 8000 meter peak in the Himalaya, or a 3000 feet in Scotland a Munro, or a 4000 foot peak in New York or New Hampshire. 

Wikipedia says there are 53 Colorado Fourteeners, and 96 Fourteeners in total in the USA (almost all in Alaska, California and Colorado.)  Since people who climb Fourteeners like to climb mountains, it usually makes sense to use looser criteria so you have more peaks to climb.
