Editorial Reviews

Review

"Abbott pulls no punches; his insights are perceptive and refreshing...This book is worthwhile; it turns up nuggets in the pan and keeps the reader searching for more"
- The Journal of American History


"[A] well-illustrated, well-balanced volume... The three authors incorporate the right quotes to paint the essence of the moment, provide insight, or capture the life and times. ...[A]n excellent volume for students and the general public to learn the history of Colorado."
- New Mexico Historical Review


"An exciting, professionally competent history of the State of Colorado that far exceeds the traditional state history."
- Journal of Historical Geography

This book was used as a text book in one of my history classes at CSU back in the mid 80s. I kicked myself later on after selling it when I graduated. I never did consider this book to be a "text" book, but a highly enjoyable factual account written with precision and accuracy. I was only slightly disappointed not to be able to find the 2nd Ed., which is the one I read, but bought the 4th Ed. There are some subtle changes, but changes I did notice. Excellent, excellent book!

If you have to get this book for your colorado History class and the one you're supposed to get is the 4th edition, the 3rd edition (with the rust colored cover) is nearly identical and has very few and very minute changes to it. There are a few photos in the 4th that are not in the 3rd, but for the 19.00 I saved I had a "hot lunch" on campus instead of packing my lunch and consoled myself. It was difficult but I got through it...
Seriously, if you're wondering if this is one of those books that you can get away with an older, cheaper edition, yes. Yes it is.

I would like to return this book, but I need it for a class. The writing is actually very good with a lot of detail considering the concise writing style. However, my big complaint is that the pages are falling out of the binding. After only reading the book for a week at least 50 pages have fallen out. Perhaps I will return the book after my class ends in late July. Hopefully Amazon will honor a refund.

This book, purchased for a college History class is mediocre at best. It can't be used very effectively for in depth information reagrding events of great importance in Colorado History. It reads like a tourists guide to Colorado History. I find myself constantly having to refer to websites and other books for information. If you purchase this book for a class, be prepared to spend alot more time researching topics outside of the drive-thru information you get out of this text.

Well written. This book provided a great deal of in depth information about Colorado history without becoming an dry, academic tome. A good, quick reference for anyone interested in Colorado history.
