Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really don't wish to offend the author of this book, but this is really lacking so far as history books are concerned. It is a hodgepodge of dates, names and pieces of information but that does not a history book make. And on one of the last pages there is mention of Chief Colorow being alive in 1925. So far as I know, he died in 1888. And the book title is misleading. If the book was condensed to include only that information about Chief Ouray, it would be a pamphlet, maybe not even a dozen pages. The book is 210 pages but heavily padded with images. Perhaps there isn't too much information on Ouray, but if that's the case, this is still poorly written and a mishmash of details. And that's the way I see it.

Format: Paperback
Ouray separated romance from reality and did his best to protect his people from disaster. There were no easy choices for the Utes. We could use leaders like him today.

The book developed the context of Ouray's life well, and gave me, for one, a much clearer vision of the conquest of the Indians in Colorado than I had previously. And of course,

It is among my favorite books.

Another one of P. David Smith's, full of errors and misidentified photographs.
