Examines the accomplishments and failures of Enos A. Mills (1870-1922) as a public figure. Mills, a widely known writer of magazine articles and 16 books, also operated Long's Peak Inn and was "an unpaid and self-appointed public servant." Often called the father of Rocky Mountain National Park, he was a sensitive observer and interpreter of the Colorado wilderness. Tragically, his deep convictions and stubbornness made it impossible for him to work amicably with other conservationists.
