History of the State of Colorado Volume II

Frank Hall is renowned for four volumes of Colorado history published in 1889, 1890, 1891, and 1895, respectively. So extensive is this work, which covers the state's "prehistory" to 1895, that it is still considered a primary resource on Colorado for professional and amateur historians, alike. Hall's History of Colorado is definitive in scope, not only covering the Colorado gold rush "boom days" that began in 1859, but also including material on prehistoric and historic Native Americans; Spanish, French and American explorers; the lives of early trappers, traders, and pioneers; the Sante Fe Trail; and commercial and social expansion in the mountains and on the plains.
