This popular volume, available again in paperback, presents the exciting history of Colorado though the lives of thirty-two of its most noteworthy citizens, both famous and obscure, who helped to shape Colorado as we know it today. Among those featured are: Black Kettle (Cheyenne chief); David Day (outspoken newspaper editor of the San Juans); Anne Bassett (feisty cattle rancher); Lewis Price (real estate entrepreneur); Casimiro Barela (legendary lawmaker from Trinidad); Josephine Roche (social activist and labour organiser); Jefferson Randolph 'Soapy' Smith (infamous con-man) and Enos Mills (conservationist and park advocate).
