1 Atwood, Wallace W. The Rocky Mountains : Third Volume in the American Mountain Series
New York Vanguard Press 1945 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
[1945]. Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full beige cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red and black. Octavo. Brown topstain and beige endpapers. 324pps., with numerous photos and illustrations and a fold-out map. There is a modest amount of dustspotting to the cloth, otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound; the pages are unaffected by said spotting. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing and soiling and a small (1/4") tear at the top of the front panel; the original price (3.75) is intact. Nicely SIGNED and inscribed by the noted geologist, geographer, and educator, in his florid script, to the original owner on the title-page. ".This is more than a book. It is a memorable, exciting adventure -- an adventure for the amateur naturalist, for the armchair traveler, and for every lover of our mountain ranges and the great American West. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Dr. Atwood, President of Clark University and the foremost authority on the Rocky Mountains, tells the story of our most magnificent mountain area with its many-hued gorges, its snow-capped peaks, its glaciers, and its awe-inspiring scenery. 'The Rocky Mountains' takes the reader on an exhilarating camping trip -- one which he will not soon forget. During the day, he climbs on horseback through the high mountains, breathing champagne air and learning the incredible story of the origin and growth of the Rockies. In the evening, around the campfire with cowhands and members of the exploring party, he hears tales of the first white settlers, of the free and easy mining days, of the ranchmen who form the backbone of our western people today. As he turns in to warm blankets he will sense the grandeur of the towering rock peaks stabbing the sky around him, reaching toward the stars."
