About the event
Join us for slides, music, Colorado history, and stories about John’s latest two projects. Book sale and signing of all of John’s popular Colorado books and 2023 calendars before and after the show, so come early to avoid the rush. (A portion of book sales will benefit the Parker Area Historical Society.)
Colorado’s Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-Foot Peaks
A new book about how all 58 mountains were named and who first climbed them. Enjoy John’s amazing photographs, Bob Wogrin’s sublime paintings, and historical Hayden Survey sketches.
Weld County: 4,000 Square Miles of Grandeur, Greatness & Yesterdays
A new book about the Colorado prairie and our 3rd largest county. From the Poudre to the Platte to the Pawnee Buttes, John’s photography of the High Plains rivals that of Colorado’s highest peaks, which also have their own special history.
John Fielder has worked tirelessly to promote the protection of Colorado’s ranches, open space, and wildlands during his 40-year career as a nature photographer and publisher. His photography has influenced people and legislation and has earned him recognition including the 1993 Sierra Club Ansel Adams Award, in 2011 the Aldo Leopold Foundation’s first Achievement Award ever given to an individual, and in 2017, Colorado Mountain College presented him an Honorary Degree in Sustainability Studies. 52 books have been published depicting his Colorado photography. He lives in Summit County, Colorado.
