Language of Materials



Horace Garst was an avid outdoorsman whose abilities in the wilderness were recognized regionally in Colorado. In 1910 he wrote “Outing Trips in the Rockies Suitable for Tenderfeet”, a guide to hunting, fishing, hiking, and other recreational activities in the Rocky Mountains. The book includes written descriptions accompanied by black and white photographs, pen and ink drawings, and ephemera. This collection consists of the original copy of “Outing Trips in the Rockies Suitable for Tenderfeet”. The book was published again in 2014 with an introduction written by his grandson, Warren Garst, and E. [Eugene] Decker. The volume is available to view in Mountain Scholar.

Horace Garst was born and raised in Greenville, Ohio on July 4, 1849. After marrying Sarah Alice Frizell, the couple moved to Denver, Colorado where Garst worked as the Denver representative for the Marshall Field Company. He died in 1944.
