Volume 2 in this sweeping history of the exploration of the San Juan Mountains and the founding of Silverton. This volume begins in 1876 and covers the years immediately following Coroado's admission to statehood, the formation of San Juan County and the incorporation of Silverton. The author paints a detailed portrait of the communities and isolated miners, building up a layered picture of settlement, resource extraction and transportation in one of the country's most isolated areas. Covers the county's first smelters, the Lime Creek Burn, the first flurry of fatal avalanches, the approach of the Denver & Rio Grande Railway, and the founding of Animas Forks and Gladstone. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos (and a few sweeping color ones) and numerous maps. 352 pages with detailed index.
