The Passing of the Storm, by Alfred Castner King, is an epic poem that takes the reader on a journey through the history of the American Civil War, The Crimean War in Russia, and life in the Rocky Mountains during the early 1900s.  Through stories told by Colorado gold miners trapped in a cabin in a mountain blizzard they relate their life histories around these major historical events; telling tales of brothers separated into the Union and Rebel armies, a student imprisoned in a Siberian jail, courage, fears, and lost love.

A rare example of epic verse, it sends its readers deep into the heart of the ruggedly wild world of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, blending together the pivotal events of that tumultuous era with an ageless tale of brotherly courage and love.  The stories capture the heart of what drove men from all over the world to seek solace in the American West during those times.

Originally published in 1907, Alfred Castner King’s unique and beautiful The Passing of the Storm survives as his most enduring work. The book includes Other Poems describing life in the American West during the early 1900s and particularly the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and Colorado.
