9780870817892: Colorado: A History in Photographs, Revised Edition

Photography in Colorado was encouraged as early as 1861, when newspaper editor William Byers wrote in the Rocky Mountain News, "Secure the shadow, ere the substance perish," and roused the citizenry to take photographs of their families, friends, landscape, homes, and mills in order to document their lives and share them with others. The revised edition of Colorado: A History in Photographs draws on this rich legacy, portraying Colorado's history in images taken from the frontier era to the present, all accompanied by a vivid, updated narrative.

Presenting a broad view of countless aspects of life in Colorado and including 270 black-and-white photographs, this book will inform, entertain, and inspire all those who delight in learning more about the history of the Centennial State.

"An evocative story in photographs as well as an energetic mini-history of the Centennial State, both wrapped together neatly in one volume. Altogether an enjoyable book."

"A superb combination of text and photos that makes vivid and personal the history of Colorado. This book should be in every home and library in Colorado."
