About this title:

Synopsis: The journals of Charles Armstrong offer the reader a rare glimpse of never-before-revealed details of an ordinary man in an extraordinary place. Armstrong journeyed to Aspen where he built a cabin, searched for valuable minerals, worked as a surveyor, fished, trapped, enjoyed an active social life for a prospector, raised his own vegetables, and much more - all of which leaps at the reader from the pages of his journals.

Christian J. Buys, a psychologist, prefaces each section of Armstrong's diary with a personality profile, giving the reader an intimate understanding of these remarkable journals.

About the Author: Christian J. Buys is a professor of psychology at Mesa State College in Grand Junction. He became interested in Colorado history when he moved to Boulder to pursue his doctorate at the University of Colorado. He has written numerous articles in psychology, nautical archeology and Colorado history. Awarded Fullbright Scholarships to Egypt and Malaysia, Buys and his family have traveled extensively. He is also an avid hiker and loves traveling the back country of Colorado. Buys has written three award-winning books, Historic Leadville in Rare Photographs and Drawings (1977), Historic Telluride in Rare Photographs (1998) and Illustrations of Historic Colorado (1999). His latest book, Historic Aspen in Rare Photographs (2000) is already rousing great interest by historians and fans alike.
