Abbot Fay's I Never Knew That About Colorado: A Quaint Volume Of Forgotten Lore is a fascinating compendium of bits and pieces of obscure Colorado history. Here are to be found the true stories of such little known events personalities as Colorado's post-Civil War slavery; Adolph Hitler's Colorado ranch; Mark Twain and Denver censorship; when it literally snowed ducks on I-70; the bombing of Colorado during World War II; "The Man Who Word Out His Coffin"; and many more such astonishing history-based tales. I Never Knew That About Colorado is highly recommended reading for students of Colorado history, and anyone who enjoys relatively unknown, odd and dramatic historical anecdotes.

I picked up a copy of Abbott Fay's book and immediately found a significant error. He says that Willard Libby graduated from Grand Valley High School in 1926. Libby's family left Parachute when he was 5 years old; he attended California schools. Yes, he was born in what was then Grand Valley, but if he'd stayed, he would have had a difficult time obtaining an adequate education in order to win the Nobel Prize for chemistry. If you repeat old canards long enough, they can come to be regarded as true, but they are still lies. He stole this particular lie from Al Look, who also did shoddy research. It might be fun to read, but what's the point?

This book has some interesting facts, but could have had more depth to it - there is so much about Colorado that I know that is not common knowledge.

Fun and not so well known Colorado Historical stories that provide a yearning to travel and visit amazing areas within the state.
