The Magnificent Mountain Women: Adventures in the Colorado Rockies
Since the Pikes Peak gold rush in the mid?nineteenth century, women have gone into the mountains of Colorado to hike, climb, ski, homestead, botanize, act as guides, practice medicine, and meet a variety of other challenges, whether for sport or for livelihood. Janet Robertson recounts their exploits in a lively, well-illustrated book that measures up to its title, The Magnificent Mountain Women. Arlene Blum provides a new introduction to this edition.

The correct name of Elmira, known as Herman Buhl's wife, is Lumena. I am her granddaughter, and the pictures in A CLIMBER'S CLIMBER clearly show her, also with her name incorrect.
