A biographical history of entrepreneur, philanthropist and transportation innovator Freelan Oscar (F.O.) Stanley of Kingfield, Maine, who together with his twin brother, F.E., achieved success manufacturing photographic dry plates and the Stanley Steamer automobile. Forced to move West with tuberculosis, Stanley found refuge in Estes Park, Colorado, and spent the rest of his life building up the small, rustic western town into a world-class resort. With the palatial Stanley Hotel as his centerpiece, Stanley promoted the West and fostered the new industry of automobile tourism. This book brings to life one of the West's (and East's) true fascinating characters.
