The opening paragraphs by the Father of Rocky Mountain National Park, detail his pain upon acquiring snow-blindness at the summit of the Continental Divide. In true adventurer’s spirit, he was “only moderately excited, feeling no terror. Less startling incidents have shocked me more, narrow escapes from street automobiles have terrified me.” He lived and worked amongst the Longs Peak region and ultimately fostered its protection in 1915.

Recommends it for: heritage interpreters, naturalists, guides
This is a classic for any nature guide or heritage interpreter. All of the concepts later attributed to Freeman Tilden and others show up to some degree in this book published in 1920. Mills ran a nature guiding school on Long's Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park before it became a park. He was influential in getting it to be a park.
