Colorado, the queen jewel of the Rockies; a description of its climate and of its mountains, rivers, forests and valleys; an account of its explorers; a review of its Indians--past and present; a survey of its industries, with some reference to what it offers of delight to the automobilist, traveller, sportsman and health seeker; together with a brief resume of its influence upon writers and artists, and a short account of its problems and how met, and of its inexhaustible resources and their development. By Mae Lacy Baggs. With a map and fifty-four plates, of which six are in color.
