It is the early part of the twentieth century, in Colorado Springs, and the schoolhouse, the newsstand, the railroad, the mines--all become part of the younger mans emergence into adulthood and self-discovery.Waterss powerful and intuitive style transforms the tale into a mythic journey, a search for meaning played out in the drama of everyday living on the vast American frontier.Pikes Peak (1971) is composed of three condensed novels: The Wild Earths Nobility, Below Grass Roots, and The Dust within the Rock. Some years after its publication, an interviewer asked Frank Waters whether it was autobiographical. Yes, he replied, and no.
