by Jeri Norgren, with photographs by John Fielder and oil paintings by Robert L. Wogrin

From John Fielder Publishing. Author Jeri Norgren has written fascinating text about just how the names were chosen for the 58 highest mountains in Colorado, and who climbed each of them first. 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's Fielder's photographs of the fourteeners, many never before published, Robert L. Wogrin's sublime oil paintings and sketches, and 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.

$45.00/12” x 9” Hardcover/160 pages/125 photographs, oil paintings, and historical sketches.
