Colorado’s roads wind through country that is steeped in history, sometimes tracing routes with a history of their own, from the Santa Fe Trail to the Million Dollar Highway.

But no matter where you roam in this beautiful state, this book can guide you.
Like other books in this popular series, Roadside History of Colorado is divided into geographical-historical areas, making it easy to explore the state region by region.

Mesmerizing tales of adventure and tragedy:

  •   including cannibalism on the Starvation Trail,
  • the infamous Sand Creek Massacre,
  • the jailing of Mother Jones,
  • and the Big Thompson River flood of 1976  will thrill both Coloradans and visitors.
