It Happened in Colorado Reviews
Good Colorado history vignettes.
This book was very informative. Every story was short and easy to read. I wanted to read it to know a little of the background of Colorado and I feel like I accomplished what I was hoping to achieve. Although, I have to admit that some of the stories were interesting only because I heard a little about them from my History class in college. Besides that, I am pleased with having read it and hearing stories like Francis Parkman's predictions of CO and the story of cannibalism.
This book is targeted for middle schoolers but I guess that's about when I would have learned Colorado history had I grown up in Colorado and studied state history in school. The stories are interesting tales of the untamed West and the colorful characters that help shape the Centennial State. It was fun learning about where the names of some Colorado towns and streets in Denver originated. Definitely worth a read if you'd like to learn a little more about Colorado.
gives a good overgview of many of the stories in colorado history
a great little overview of the history of Colorado
A fascinating series of vignettes that tell of the amazing history of Colorado from ancient times to modern. It is a good look at the characters who helped to shape the American West and the circumstances that created the state of Colorado from a wilderness. Definitely worth reading.
This was a little book of mini-histories of Colorado.
