<i>America's Switzerland</i>, a
companion volume to <i>This Blue
Hollow</i>, is the first comprehensive history of
Rocky Mountain National Park and its neighboring town, Estes Park,
during the decades when travel became a middle-class rite of
summer. Drawing on a wide variety of primary sources and extensive
archival research, James H. Pickering reveals how the evolution of
tourism and America's fascination with the "western experience"
shaped the park and town from 1903 to 1945.<
Switzerland</i> provides extensive information, much
of it new to historical literature, on how Estes Park and Rocky
Mountain National Park - the most visited national park west of the
Mississippi - developed to welcome ever-growing crowds. Pickering
profiles the individuals behind the development and details the
challenges park and town confronted during decades that included
two world wars and the Great Depression.
