The Cañon City area’s high points have been literal, starting with the magnificent Royal Gorge. Here the Royal Gorge Bridge crosses the Arkansas River, 1,053 feet below, as the highest suspension span in the world. From the scenic and geological diversity to some of the initial oil discoveries in the United States, this Fremont County seat has been a hub of coal mining and archaeological discoveries, particularly of dinosaur remains. The temperate weather means long growing seasons, celebrated each May by the Blossom and Music Festival. Once a commerce center supplying food, lumber, and other goods to surrounding gold towns―from Cripple Creek to Leadville―Cañon City also once was a silent-film capital, the base for hundreds of motion pictures produced after the beginning of the 20th century. Prisons and their residents have always been a huge part of Cañon City history; the first territorial prison was located here and many more prisons operate here today.

Review:

Title: Author’s first book highlights history of area

Author: Carie Canterbury

Pubisher: The Daily Record

Date: 3/22/2010
Local history is revisited and people and events from long ago are brought to life through Anne Vinnola’s newly released book, “Cañon City.”
Through the pictorial history of Cañon City, Vinnola hopes to bring fond memories to longtime Fremont County residents, as well as offer a glance into the rich history of the area to newcomers.
“Cañon City” is the latest in Arcadia Publishing’s “Images of America” series that includes more than 200 photos and focuses on Cañon City history, including the dinosaur digs, mining, people who made a difference, the film industry, landmarks and prisons.
“I’ve been writing hunting articles, and shooting and youth sports for years,” Vinnola said. “But I’ve always liked history, so that’s what kind of got me started on that.”
“Cañon City” is Vinnola’s first book, but she has written for a number of outdoor magazines for several years. She is conducting research for a historical romance novel she is in the process of writing.
Vinnola said “Cañon City” took about nine months to complete and enjoyed researching the various topics at the Royal Gorge Regional Museum & History Center.
“There were several things that surprised us at the history center when we were going through it,” she said. “It was really fun to write and really fun to get to know the history and the people.”
She also includes more information on the book on her new blog, RoyalGorgeous.com, where she will expand on some of the photos and history she learned from her research. The blog also includes Fremont County and regional history, contests, fun facts, local events, restaurant reviews, things to do around Fremont County and places to visit within two hours of Fremont County.
Vinnola’s other Web site, AnnieGotHerGun.com, focuses on hunting, shooting, women hunters, youth hunters, field care, taxidermy, Second Amendment issues and more.
“Cañon City” is available for $21.99 at Hastings, 1811 Fremont Drive, and Big Timber South Taxidermy Studio, 708 Royal Gorge Blvd., online bookstores or through Arcadia Publishing at arcadiapublishing.com or (888) 313-2665.
Vinnola said she will set up a booth during the Blossom Festival, the first weekend in May. Along with the book, also available are packages of 15 postcards featuring photos from the book for $7.99.
Vinnola will host two area book signings. The first will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center at 612 Royal Gorge Blvd. and the other will be from 3-5 p.m. April 3 at Hastings.
