America’s Switzerland

America’s Switzerland, Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, The Growth Years

Author - James H. Pickering

America’s Switzerland, a companion volume to “This Blue Hollow,” is the first comprehensive history of Rocky Mountain National Park and its neighboring town, Estes Park, during the decades when travel became a rite of summer for the American middle class. 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.
