Experience Colorado with this new, expanded edition of A Colorado History. For fifty years, the authors of this preeminent resource have led readers on an extraordinary exploration of how the state has changed-and how it has stayed the same. An engaging narrative, A Colorado History begins with the prehistoric cliff dwellers of Mesa Verde and proceeds chronologically with accounts of Colorado's role as a frontier territory-its fur trade, mining, Indian relations, cattle ranching, and homesteading-and continues to the present day political, economic, cultural, and environmental issues. Fascinating, informative, and accessible to history buffs, students, researchers- or anyone-interested in the remarkable story of a remarkable place. The tenth edition features a new chapter on recent events, new photos, and an updated bibliography section. Book jacket.
