The Pikes Peak Gold Rush

Spotlight on Colorado

Few events have shaped the history, economy, and even geography of the state of Colorado quite like the Gold Rush. This book examines the events that led up to the discovery of gold, how the Gold Rush changed the cities and towns of Colorado, and the long-term effects on the state's environment and natural resources. The informative text, supported by full color images and primary source documents, provides not only a chronology of events, but also historical perspective on how the past inevitably impacts the present.
