A dual biography of Colorado's last territorial governor and first state governor, John L. Routt and his wife, Eliza. In addition to being elected governor twice and serving as mayor of Denver, Routt's business acumen earned him the titles Bonanza King and Cattle King.

Eliza's contribution to the new state included years of service as the first woman appointed to the state Board of Agriculture. She had the distinction of being the first woman registered to vote in Colorado. Their story is the exciting story of the early days of Colorado statehood.

Richly illustrated with historic photographs, many in print for the first time. Foreword by former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm.
