Pressestimmen"The individual tales, regardless of where they occur, or in which of the three parks, often illustrate those characteristics that made frontier life very hard, indeed. The story of how Peg Leg Smith's name came to be will make many a reader wince, and while the winters of a century ago may not have really been worse, they certainly seem so in the retelling, and winter played a prominent role in the lives of these early Colorado inhabitants." - Folio
