Overview

Since the Pikes Peak gold rush in the mid-nineteenth century, women have gone into the mountains of Colorado to hike, climb, ski, homestead, botanize, act as guides, practice medicine, and meet a variety of other challenges, whether for sport or for livelihood. Janet Robertson recounts their exploits in a lively, well-illustrated book that measures up to its title, The Magnificent Mountain Women. Arlene Blum provides a new introduction to this edition.

A professional photographer and writer whose work has appeared in many magazines, Janet Robertson lives in Boulder, Colorado. She has climbed all fifty-four of Colorado's peaks topping fourteen thousand feet and has hiked the length of the Colorado Trail. Arlene Blum has played a leading role in more than twenty successful mountaineering expeditions, including the first American climb of Annapurna. She is the author of Annapurna: A Woman's Place.
