Join us for a virtual author talk with Jeri L. Norgren and John Fiedler's, Author of Colorado's Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-Foot Peak.
Date: April 8, 2021
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.
Jeri L. Norgren is a fifth generation Colorado native. Having spent most of her life exploring the mountains and all the wonders they hold, she became fascinated with the nomenclature of the highest peaks and began her journey. As a member of the Denver Fortnightly Club, she has authored numerous papers on various topics, including one that grew into this book. A lover of nature and everything it beholds, she lives on an historic farm in Englewood surrounded by dogs, coyotes and a pair of great horned owls.
