Virtual Autor Talk: John Fielder and Jeri L. Norgren
Spend an evening exploring Colorado’s fourteeners with photographer John Fielder and author Jeri Norgren they share their new book, Colorado’s Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-foot Peaks.
Through extensive research of the early days of mining in Colorado, and the voluminous records of the Hayden Surveys of Colorado in the 1870s, Norgren has written what may prove to be a classic Colorado history book. But it’s not only words, it’s Fielder’s photographs of the fourteeners, many never before published, Robert L. Wogrin’s sublime oil paintings and sketches, and the historical sketches made in the 1870s by the artists of the Hayden Survey. These men climbed the peaks and sketched the mountains from on high. This may be Fielder’s finest history book since the popular Colorado 1870-2000 series of W.H. Jackson repeat photography books. Norgren has written fascinating text about just how the names were chosen for the 58 highest mountains in Colorado, and who first climbed them.
