A History of Aspen
A History of Aspen utilizes a narrative style and 82 historic photos to recount the saga of Aspen and the role of its leading citizens as Aspen roller-coasted from a thriving mining town and Colorado's third largest city, through a period of quiet, to its current place in the sun as a famous resort town. The book's chapters follow the progression from the mining era of the late 1800s and the quiet era that followed, through the early ski period and building of a strong cultural base, to the boom of the sixties and the growth and politics that followed into a new century.
