Since Colorado’s roads so often lack historical markers, most motorists remain unaware of the rich historical associations of every part of the state. With this amiable companion, the traveler will find that even the bleakest stretch of interstate has its unique and colorful past. Every trip, whether for business or pleasure, can be an imaginative journey into the past of the gold rush, the Indian wars, the explorers, the mountain men, pioneers, and cattlemen.
History from the highway is a unique concept, making available much of the past that would otherwise be inaccessible without tedious research and map work. Wherever the traveler happens to be, he or she will be able to find what historical event occurred in that area without having to rely on signs and markers, which are rare. Keyed to towns and mile markers, the book includes every interstate, highway and major road in the state.
