Crest of the Continent

Crest of the Continent

Reprint of 1895 ed. Ernest Ingersoll, famous 19th Century travel writer, set out to explore Colorado in the 1880's because "it was wild and rough" and caused "exhilaration of the body and soul." The result of his captivation by this American frontier.
In Crest of the Continent, Ingersoll brings "the Colorado experience" to life, perhaps better than anyone else before or since, with words and illustrations that record for all time what it was like to live in the Wild West. Todays tourist and historian will enjoy this reprint.
