Dutch Wonderland's story began with Earl Clark, a local potato broker and hotel owner who saw the need for an attraction in the Lancaster area that would appeal to children. After almost nine months of construction, Clark officially opened Dutch Wonderland to the public on May 20, 1963. Like most parks, Dutch Wonderland started out small, but it soon became one of the biggest attractions in the area. Many groundbreaking changes were made to the park throughout its first years of operation, including the addition of a monorail, the International Botanical Gardens, and a wax museum based on the history of the Lancaster area. The 1990s saw the addition of two roller coasters: the Sky Princess and the Joust. For over 50 years, Dutch Wonderland has prided itself as one of the best family parks in the country. Dutch Wonderland will take readers down memory lane, telling the story of the park through images from its colorful history.

Taking the name Pennsylvania Dutch from a corruption of their own word for themselves, "Deutsch," the first German settlers arrived in Pennsylvania in 1683. By the time of the American Revolution, their influence was such that Benjamin Franklin, among others, worried that German would become the commonwealth's official language. The continuing influence of the Church peoples-the Amish and Mennonites and others who constitute the still-vibrant Dutch culture-can be seen today in icons of Americana from apple pie to log cabins.

The Army's 10th Mountain Division, developed during World War II for combat missions in the mountains of northern Italy, evolved into ski patrols as we know them today. Far-reaching and nuanced, the job of a ski patroller combines long days, physically demanding work in high alpine environments, and the ability to respond to complex medical emergencies. In Colorado, ski patrol has grown from a volunteer operation to a professional workforce--incorporating advancements in lifesaving techniques, avalanche forecasting, and specialized guest services. Relying heavily on their fellow patrollers, life-long friendships are forged on the mountain and often embellished in legendary tales--many of which are shared within.
