This is a great book that has helped me to appreciate, respect and understand the city I live in. I would recommend this book to anyone researching the development of Denver or Colorado. I also would recommend this book to any person who is interested in learning about a western city built on mining, transportation and some pretty interesting individuals brought together by the pursuit or riches and health.
