Summary

In 'Tramping With a Poet in the Rockies,' readers are invited into a captivating anthology that bridges the rugged natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains with the lyrical beauty of poetry and prose. This collection stands out for its unique fusion of travel writing and poetic expression, encapsulating the diverse experiences and reflections of its authors as they traverse the imposing landscapes. The anthology shines a spotlight on the inherent link between the physical journey through the mountains and the metaphorical journey through the realms of creativity and inspiration, making it a significant contribution to both travel literature and poetic discourse. The contributing authors, Vachel Lindsay and Stephen Graham, bring a rich tapestry of backgrounds to the collection. Lindsay, an American poet known for his exuberant verse and innovative use of American themes and language, joins forces with Graham, a British travel writer whose journeys through Russia and involvement with early 20th-century spiritual and social movements have deeply influenced his work. Together, their writings not only explore the literal paths laid out before them but also delve into the spiritual and philosophical contemplations evoked by their surroundings, offering readers a nuanced understanding of the relationship between man and nature. 'Tramping With a Poet in the Rockies' is highly recommended for those who seek not only to explore the physical majesty of the Rockies but also to delve into the introspective journey that such a landscape inspires. This anthology is a testament to the power of collaborative literary endeavors to encapsulate and communicate the profound connections between nature, travel, and poetry. Readers will find themselves both educated and profoundly moved by the multitude of perspectives, styles, and themes presented within this singular volume, fostering a deeper appreciation for the dialogues between the varied works of its authors.

    Colorado’s Mile High City sits atop a mountain of Old West history—from stories of fortune seekers to captains of industry, immigrants to activist women.  
     
    Founded in an unlikely spot where dry prairies meet formidable mountains, Denver overcame its doubtful beginning to become the largest and most important city within a thousand miles. This tour of the Queen City of the Plains goes beyond travel guidebooks to explore its fascinating historical sites in detail. Tour the grand Victorian home where the unsinkable Molly Brown lived prior to her Titanic voyage. Visit the Brown Palace Hotel suite that President Dwight and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower used as the “Summer White House.” Pay respects at the mountaintop grave of the greatest showman of the nineteenth century, Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. From the jazzy Rossonian lounge where Ella scatted and Basie swung to gleaming twenty-first-century art museums, author Mark A. Barnhouse traces the Mile High City’s story through its historical legacy.
