Pikes Peak is a great account of the history and mysteries of the mountain and Colorado's early exploration. Some of the questions it answers are:
Did Pike say the mountain could never be climbed?
Who made the first ascent?
Why was the mountain almost named "James Peak?"
Was a small child eaten by rats on the summet?
Who planned to fly a hang glider off the summit...in 1897?
When did the first automobile ascend the peak... without a road?
Was America the Beautiful written after a trip to the summit?
