Pioneers of the Colorado Parks by Richard Barth
North, Middle, and South parks from 1850 to 1900

The exciting frontier history of the Colorado mountains can be found in these true stories from North, Middle, and South Parks. During the 1800s, folks came to settle these open meadows nestled high in the Rocky Mountains. Into North Park came Chief Piah, a Ute Indian seeking peace, Rattlesnake Jack, the best wolfer around, and John Farquhar, a scoundrel seeking political power. Early settlers of Middle Park included Texas Charlie, a wannabe bad man, Maggie Crawford, a concerned young lady who wanted to create a loving home, and the county commissioners who solved their differences with guns instead of votes. South Park witnessed Sheriff Ifinger trying to hold back a determined mob, tolerated Doe Bailey as he searched for a human head, and ignored Anna Beelers pleas that she be allowed to keep her son. These are just a few of the interesting characters youll meet when you read these unembellished stories from the Parks of Colorado. (6" x 9" 270 pages)
