Before being “discovered” by U.S. explorer Zebulon Pike in 1806, the Pikes Peak region was home to a variety of different cultures, including Native Americans, Mexicans, and French and Spanish explores. Captured here in almost 200 vintage images are the lives, trials, adventures, and leisure’s of some of the Peak’s early pioneers and visitors, covering a span of almost 60 years.
This 128 page, softcover volume published by the Arcadia Press is extensively illustrated with 200 images. Along with the rare images of the Pikes Peak area from the late 1800s, this collection contains a number of previously unpublished photographs.
