    This is the first of the Arcadia titles I've picked up, and so far it isn't a winner. The first quarter of the book has been about the settlement of the Estes Valley. I had hoped the book would be about the natural features of the Park and the effects of human activity. In other words, this is supposed to be about a national park so nature should be the focus.Maybe I'm being grumpy. A reader who doesn't know much about RMNP might enjoy the book. I ended feeling like the national park connections were an add-on. There is very little about the west side of the park.

    I love these books by Arcadia Publishing. They are short, simple and easy to read. The history of the areas in these books is fascinatingly told through old pictures. This one on Rocky Mountain NP is one of my favorites.
