about

With its ancient pueblos and dinosaur bones, its gold mines and railroads, and its pioneering place in the westward push of the American frontier, Colorado is a state alive with history. This illustrated adventure through historical Colorado takes readers by scenic backroads from the towering Rocky Mountains to the vast Great Plains, with stops at every turn for a revealing view of the state’s rich past.

 

Filled with spectacular modern photographs and historic black-and-white images, Historic Colorado tells the stories behind the most important and fascinating places in the growth and character of the Centennial State. The book follows in the footsteps of explorers and prospectors, cowpokes and pioneers, down the Santa Fe Trail, across the Continental Divide, up Clear Creek, and over Lizard Head Pass. It explores the legacy of mining, the railroads, and the Old West, as well as the heritage of Native Americans. It ventures through towns and cities, farmland and untamed wilderness, revisiting the stories of the people and personalities who made centuries of history in America's highest state. Maps and travel tips round out the book, making it as useful to the tourist as it is entertaining for the armchair traveler.
