Description

Saints and sinners (mostly sinners) lead the parade of prospectors, claimjumpers, shyster lawyers, shady ladies, miscreants and hard-working miners who scaled the high mountain passes to create the history this book records. A lively gold rush history of Summit County, Colorado, Summit ranks as a best seller in Colorado bookstores. Narrow-gauge alpine railways, Ute Indians, lusty mine camps, the 1860s birth of now-famous local ski towns and self guided mine tours all highlight this classic history. A parade of larger-than-life characters march across its pages people like dredge king Ben Stanley Revett and Colorado's famed Snow Shoe Itinerant, John Lewis Dyer, the skiing preacher.

The 25th Anniversary Edition doubles the size of the original Summit history, adding 15 new chapters. The history of skiing at Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone, as well as local ranch histories, are highlights.
