Noel and cartographer Carol Zuber-Mallison map and describe Colorado's spectacular geography and its fascinating past. The book's eight parts survey natural Colorado (from rivers and mountains to dinosaurs and mammals), history (from prehistoric peoples to twentieth-century military sites), mining and manufacturing (from the gold rush to alternative energy sources), agriculture (including wineries and brewpubs), transportation (from stagecoach lines to light rail), modern Colorado (from the New Deal to the present, a fascinating category that includes politics, history, and information on lynchings, executions, and prisons), recreation (covering not only hiking and skiing but also literary locales and Colorado in the movies), and tourism (another broad category that includes historic landmarks, museums, and even cemeteries). In short, this book has information--and surprises--that anyone interested in Colorado will relish"-- Provided by publisher.
