Mining and Ranching in Early Colorado
Boom and Bust, and Back Again
The impact Colorado's natural resources have had on its development as a state cannot be overstated. This book looks at how mining and ranching have helped shape the history, culture, and people of the Centennial State. From the Gold Rush to modern-day agriculture, the book considers how economy, industry, and the environment have all affected and been affected by the presence of these resources.
