Flap copy

Believe it or not, there's more to them than mountains alone. The Rockies are wide open prairies. They're rolling foothills, forests, rock faces, and tundra. Just think of all the different animals who live there!

Steer your four-wheel drive past a mighty herd of bison. Then watch a pack of hungry coyotes send them scattering.

Ride some mountain rapids to pay a call on a beaver family -- at the pond they've dammed up for their home.

Lace up those hiking boots and step lively into mountain lion country. Just watch out for grizzly bears.

Head above the treeline to see the spectacular wildflowers that bloom amid the alpine tundra.

Strap on your harness and scale the high cliffs past mountain goats and bighorn sheep.

So, who's king of the mountain? The answer's waiting for you at the top of the Rockies, so head on up!

Back cover copy

It's a long way up!

You're going from the foothills to the summit, and you'll have to...

leap like a mountain lion,

glide like an eagle, and

scramble like a mountain goat...

if you want to make it to the top!
