Book Description Chicago. 1861., 1861. vii,[1],134pp. plus frontispiece, plates, and errata leaf. Original cloth, rebacked. Some scattered soiling and foxing. Manuscript note on frontis. Else quite good. Clark was a Chicago physician who went to Colorado to prospect for gold in 1860, without success. He describes in detail the frontier town and expresses distaste with some of its aspects, such as the gambling, crime, and language. His narrative is considered to be one of the few authentic and truthful accounts of life and travel in Colorado of the day. The plates offer many fine illustrations of Denver and other western towns. "One of the best of the few contemporary accounts of the Pike's Peak gold rush." - Wilcox. "[Clark's] is one of the few authentic accounts of that year's travel to the Rockies" - Wagner-Camp.
