“Wow, [Rollins Pass] really sings with history, scholarship, fascinating human effort, vivid writing…” —Emailed Review

“Well done! The photos are exquisite, and extensive! My father would have loved this book…. He had a love for the pass and Moffat Road. Thanks again for your labor of love!” —Emailed Review

“I spent several hours pouring over the book and examining every photograph and I must say bravissimo! What an excellent collection of photos with wonderfully researched descriptions. Your book is truly a masterpiece that has earned its own unique place alongside The Giant’s Ladder, The Moffat Road and Rails that Climb. My only wish is that it was available in a hardcover coffee table version with extra large images! Please let us know if you would ever consider having that published—I’d pay $50-75 for a copy of that and I’m sure others would as well…” —Emailed Review
