Synopsis

Colorado Our Colorful State by Duane A. Smith, Kate Shuchter

As Abraham Lincoln observed a year after Colorado gained territorial status: Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history. In COLORADO: OUR COLORFUL STate, a fourth grade textbook perfectly adaptable for people of all ages, many of these people take a bow upon the stage. Supplemented by drawings, maps, and photographs, the text transports young and older readers from the appearance of the dinosaurs to the coming of the first hunters and gatherers and on to the late twentieth century. The builders of Mesa Verde and the Spanish explorers cross the pages. So, too, do the Utes, railroad builders, ranchers, miners, and farmers who, each in their own way, left a heritage. The women-who fought to gain the vote, saved Mesa Verde National Park, homesteaded, and 'tamed' the frontier-take their place as well. Finally, the great changes of the twentieth century, and the people who helped bring them about, come into focus as the book closes in on the present.
