Frontis portrait of the author (transparency intact) + 16 b/w photos of Colorado mountain scenery, one a fold-out panorama from the top of Mount Wilson. Dark green cloth, illustrated front cover, silver letters. Spine bumping, hd & ft. corners. Headband is somewhat loose.

Still solidly bound. 120 pages

Book was printed on heavy stock and is in much better condition than it sounds.

Alfred Castner King was born March 16, 1873, at Leslie, Mich., but spent over 60 years of his life in Colorado. In his younger days he lived in Buena Vista and attended school there. Years ago he came to the western slope, and for a long time maintained an office in Ouray, CO as an assayer. He had been in Mesa county around 41 years, during that time living at Fruita and in Grand Junction. Known as "the blind poet of Colorado" King was a writer of poems and stories, a musician and a lecturer, who traveled extensively all over the US and in foreign countries, lecturing and playing his flute. He lost his eyesight in a mine explosion over 40 years ago. Alfred Castner King died in Ouray, in September, 1941.
