Excerpt from Over the Range to the Golden Gate: A Complete Tourist's Guide to Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, Puget Sound, and the Great Northwest The country traversed is most interesting, abounding in scenes of the greatest variety, from the broad and billowy expanse of the boundless prairie to the rugged grandeur of the American Alps, from the picturesque quaintness of New Mexico and the nomadic wildness of the Indian reservations to the polished civilization of metropolitan cities. There is no journey which can be taken _on the continent of North America that presents so much of interest to the tourist, and which can be taken with such a comparatively moderate outlay of time and money, as the one described in the following pages. New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington Territory! What a field for investigation, investment or pleasure! These are the lands of gold, of silver, Of coal, of agriculture, of all fruits known to the temperate and sub-tropical zones. These are the lands Of new endeavors, of fresh impulses, and for these reasons are of special interest to tourists, business men, and seekers after health and pleasure. Aside from the interesting character of the subject discussed, there is also a special value in the work now presented to the reader, inasmuch as great care has been taken to gather information that shall be found statistically accurate. In a work Of this character it is difficult to combine accurate information with matters of general interest in such a way that neither shall have an undue prominence. The writer has endeav ored to attain this desirable medium. One thing is certain, nothing in this book is venal in its character. The opinions here expressed are those Of the writer; the descriptions of scenes given here are reproductions Of the feelings inspired by those scenes. There has been no bias in any direction. On the contrary, every effort has been made to write judicially; and at the same time, retain the enthusiasm which the traveler naturally feels in beholding new sights and scenes. As an aid to the traveler abundant illustrations have been prepared, which will give the purchaser Of this book an idea of what he may expect to see; and which, after he has beheld these places, will serve as a reminder of those pleasant scenes which by their assistance can never fade from his memory.
