Interesting to me due to personal family history Jan. 15 2014
By Diana J. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Would be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in settling of the old west. Our family was a founding family in Grand Encampment and so it was very interesting to us.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was "good for starters," and no doubt the authors had difficulty condensing the history of Grand Encampment into such a "Cliff Notes" type of format. However, I think some of the items could have been better researched, or notated. Some of the photo identifications don't seem to quite ring true - at least in terms of some certain particular family lore. It also seems that a lot of the colorful local folks were left out of the picture in favor of concentrating in the obvious - that being the mining/ore trade that gave the town its economy, but does not necessarily describe the wealth behind in the character of its amazing people.
