KIRKUS REVIEW

The man who did so much to bring knowledge of and enthusiasm for the Estes Park section of the Rockies is vividly drawn in this biography, written by his wife in collaboration with Miss Hawthorne. Certainly an eccentric and a bit of a crank, Enos Mills was, none the less, a pioneer in the research he did and constructive in establishing the first steps toward wild life and plant preservation and supervised forestry. Can't see much general interest in this, except locally, though it should be valuable for reference work in public libraries and schools. The handling of the material is not keyed to younger readers, particularly, so the market can be spread over the adult field, and the book sold for travelers, westward bound, heading for Colorado, and seeking background material.
