About the book:
Built upon a core of historic images, this narrative explores the evolution of modern Colorado from the last Ice Age through the legalization of marijuana. It travels into the mines and through the Dust Bowl, explores the clash of cultures and the lives of household names such as Kit Carson and the Unsinkable Molly Brown, shines a light on shipbuilding and atomic detonations, celebrates the state's numerous Olympians and Nobel Laureates, and through it all revels in the natural, breathtaking wonder that is Colorado. An essential guide for tourists and citizens, there are more than two hundred photographs here and it includes a comprehensive index to the text (over 1,300 entries) that provides an easy-to-use reference. Not just a book, 'A Photographic History of Colorado' is a souvenir, a gift of heritage, and a keepsake that will be shared for generations.
