Printed on front “An Inviting Road in the Rockies” and “The Call of the Trail. / The call of the wild is not over the sea / It comes from the west, the Trail is free / My automobile is the castle key / That opens the western world to me. / The sweep of the hills in their distant view / Nor the roll of the plains I never knew / Till the Call of the Trail lured me out to view / The wonderful spots where the west is new.” Printed on back “The West is the place for the ‘Vagabond Lover’ of nature and the outdoors. Highways go nearly everywhere even to the tops of the mountains, and quiet trails lead to secluded beauty spots away from the crowd. To roam all day and camp at night beneath the pines and aspens beside a murmuring stream at the foot of a mountain makes a perfect (Rocky Mountain) day.”
