THE MOFFAT ROAD. Edward T Bollinger and Frederick Bauer. Sage Books / The Swallow Press, Chicago. 1962 First Edition 360pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in fine condition, tight, white and bright. There is a small neat rubber stamp to the f.e.p. suggesting that it might be a file copy, not for reasle. The unclipped dustwrapper has some edge wear and some small areas of loss but is otherwise complete if a little sun tanned. Illustrated with over four hundred and thirty photos, drawings and maps of this spectacular route through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The story of the Moffat Route of the Denver & Rio Grande Western begins in 1860 with a man called David Moffat. Moffat, aged 21 viewed Colorado as a land of endless opportunity. Coming from New York he started up in Denver with a bookstore. Soon he changed to banking. There he started to invest in silver mines making him a Millionaire by the time he turned 40. Soon Moffat got interested in railroads. He became a board member with the Denver & Rio Grande and just two years later, aged 45 he became president of the company. He soon made himself a name by making tough decisions. When the Denver & Rio Grande refused to build a line to the silver mines of Creede, Moffat built it himself and made a fortune. When word came around that there were findings of gold in Cripple Creek, Moffat again built a railroad from his own funds and made a lot of money. But Moffat wanted something more than that: A new mainline railroad across the Rocky Mountains. He found it unacceptable, that his trains had to travel 120 miles south to Pueblo until turning west over Tenessee Pass for Salt Lake City. Ref N1 Size: 360pp. N° de ref. de la librería 008188
