John Stansfield

"Enos Mills was a sickly boy who grew into a robust, busy man. He was a naturalist, an author, a national park advocate, a public speaker, a photographer, a businessman, a mountaineer and adventurer, a miner, and a conservationist. Mills's abiding belief was that appreciation of and exposure to nature were essential to the well being of an individual and a nation."
—From the Introduction

Moving to Colorado from Kansas in 1884, Mills explored Colorado's mountains, advocating the preservation of the state’s recreational and scenic resources. In books, papers, and speeches, Mills fought for creation of Rocky Mountain National Park, a dream finally fulfilled in 1915.
