Review quote

"This book is detailed and highly readable, and is a welcome addition to the literature on Colorado."--Nebraska History "A valuable, balanced, and well-written overview of Colorado's formative years."--Western Historical Quarterly "Scholars and students will thank [the author] for at least the next century. . . . His extensive research has borne fruit in a well-organized, informative, concise history that ranks high among the thousands of books written about Colorado since 1866."--Great Plains Quarterly
