Crest of the Continent

Ernest Ingersoll, famous 19th century travel writer, set out to explore Colorado in the 1880s because "it was wild and rough" and caused "exhilaration of the body and soul." In Crest of the Continent, Ingersoll brings the "Colorado experience" to life 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.
