5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kesselring on February 2, 2012
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book (from a competitor) knowing it would be a gamble. There wasn't a review either here on Amazon or the competitors website. Having a gift card I decided to throw the dice and see what I got. What I got, I promptly returned.

First the maps (all in black and white)are very general in nature. Most of them show the entire state in general, not specific locations with the state. A few notable exceptions are the area of the Cripple Creek Mining district, and the San Juan Mountains area. But the rest of the maps were very general: temperature and rainfall, location of mineral resources, ski resorts, etc. again all shown on a one page map of the entire state.

I often judge a book not only upon its content but also for its value. This may seem strange to some but I like to stretch my book dollars and get quality without feeling the need to get ripped off. I'll pay top dollar for books, but those books have to have it where it counts - quality content.

In the case of this book I would definitely not pay the full asking price. A used copy for much less money would make you feel better about your purchase because while there is some useful information in this atlas most of it is too general.

From the book description listed here on Amazon it says "Weekend tourists will learned to follow old trails, stagecoach lines, and narrow-gauge railroads to ghost towns, historic districts, literary landmarks, quaint bed-and-breakfasts, and other attractions." I really don't see how anyone could use any of these maps to do any of these activities they suggest. Aside from the exceptions I mentioned a map showing such a large state, on a single back in black and white, is hardly a useful tool to find a ghost town or retrace stagecoach line. If you are looking for something that is useful for such an activity - please look elsewhere.
