THE DOME OF THE CONTINENT: Colorado in 1872. by V. Colvin.
With geological, mineralogical, and biological notes, here is a little tour of the Colorado of 1872--one of mining camps, stage roads, and a mountain climb to the summit of Grays Peak, a "14er" (peak over 14,000 feet altitude). It was a tour similar to ones today's visitor often take, 'though they use their cars more. Area covered includes Denver and the mountains just west--Central City, Idaho Springs, Georgetown, Grays Peak. Topics cover how to find gold, mine it, and refine it. Modern visitors can appreciate their sojourns more with this historical insight.

WHAT'S COOKING IN OUR NATIONAL PARKS.
by National Park Service Western Regional Office Cookbook Committee.
This now "almost-classic" title of National Park-iana is a choice collection of over 500 highly prized recipes from employees of our national parks--not just the rangers, but those in personnel and administration, and management and maintenance and planning and design, plus park spouses. Includes sections on outdoor cooking and recipes for large (hundreds of eaters) crowds. Indexes show what persons and what parks contributed which recipes, and the recipes are grouped by type. Dishes include Cruzan Potatoes from the Virgin Islands, Pete's Potato Salad, Hawaiian Style Spareribs, Abalone Cabrillo, Crazy Cake with NPS Frosting, Navajo Fry Bread, Backpack Jerky, Cowboy Beans, Wilderness Molasses Cake for 250, Mormon Gravy, Clamdigger Sandwiches, Dandelion Wine, and of course Ranger Cookies. Royalty proceeds go to the Employees & Alumni Association of the National Park Service, where the money has traditionally been used for scholarship loans to its members' children. A steady seller over the years, there are now 58,000 copies in print. Many park cooperating associations and concessioners carry the book, as do outlets around parks and wherever cookbooks are sold.
Over 30 photos from America's parks, full color cover. 256 pages.
