Additional Information

Since 1976 newcomers and natives alike have learned about the rich history of the magnificent place they call home from Colorado: A History of the Centennial State. In this revised edition, co-authors Carl Abbott, Stephen J. Leonard, and Thomas J. Noel incorporate more than a decade of new events, findings, and insights about Colorado in an accessible volume that general readers and students will enjoy.


The new edition tells of conflicts, new alliances, and changing ways of life as Hispanic, European, and African American settlers flooded into a region that was already home to Native Americans. Providing balanced coverage of the entire state's history - from Grand Junction to Lamar and from Trinidad to Craig - the authors also reveal how Denver and its surrounding communities developed and gained influence.


While continuing to elucidate the significant impact of mining, agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism on Colorado, this new edition broadens its coverage. The authors expand their discussion of the twentieth century with several new chapters on the economy, politics, and cultural conflicts of recent years. In addition, they address changes in attitudes toward the natural environment as well as the contributions of women, Hispanics, African Americans, and Asian Americans to the state. Dozens of new illustrations, updated statistics, and an extensive bibliography of the most recent research on Colorado history enhance this edition.

If you have to get this book for your colorado History class and the one you're supposed to get is the 4th edition, the 3rd edition (with the rust colored cover) is nearly identical and has very few and very minute changes to it. There are a few photos in the 4th that are not in the 3rd, but for the 19.00 I saved I had a "hot lunch" on campus instead of packing my lunch and consoled myself. It was difficult but I got through it...
Seriously, if you're wondering if this is one of those books that you can get away with an older, cheaper edition, yes. Yes it is.
Great "Colorado, A History of the Centennial State"!
Got a little bogged down in discussing the politics of the state over the years but I did enjoy the topographical and historical passages.
