Book Description:
This lively best seller by leading Colorado historians Steve Leonard and Tom Noel is the most comprehensive survey ever written of the Mile High metropolis. Informative and richly illustrated, Denver covers the developing region from the mountain towns of Boulder and Jefferson counties to the High Plains settlements of Adams and Arapahoe counties, with more than two thirds of the book devoted to the burgeoning five county region since 1900.

In retelling the tale of conquest and city building, the authors explore the role of previously neglected peoples notably women, ethnic minorities, and the working class while weaving several key themes throughout the book: Denver s persistent reliance on natural resources, the important role of transportation to overcome the city s isolation, and the city s emphasis on privatization rather than on the public, common good. Denver: Mining Camp to Metropolis will fascinate and educated students and scholars, as well as all readers curious about the boom and bust metropolis of the Rockies.
