THE CITY OF DENVER, 1888: an early
history of "The Queen City of the Plains." by Edwards Roberts.
Here is Denver at a time when the Centennial State of Colorado was only 12 years old. It is a story of mines, railroads, cattle and sheep, of cowboys, prospectors, bankers, merchants, and politicians--the resources from the region and the personalities that brought them together at this city on the plains at the base of the Rockies. The city itself had had fewer than 50 residents during the winter of 1858-59, but already by 1888 public and private buildings, urban and suburban districts, parks and schools had been built and arranged around a transportation system of rail, trolley, horse, and foot. It was a system that had "fit", unlike today's transportation system. It must have been an exciting period! There are also glimpses of satellite cities--Golden, Boulder, Central City, Black Hawk, Georgetown, and Leadville. Reprinted from Harper's Magazine. Illustrated with period engravings, 24 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

LIFE ON INTERTIDAL ROCKS: a guide to marine life of the rocky North Atlantic coast. by Cherie Hunter Day.
Identifies plants and animals (Kelp, Sea Anemones, Sea Slugs, Crabs, and Starfish, and many more) that live in the intertidal zone of the rocky Atlantic Coast, from Rhode Island north to the Bay of Fundy.
The granite bedrock of this glacier-scoured coast forms a habitat with many places for living things to hide. The twice-daily rise and fall of the sea with the tides creates the intertidal zone, extending from the splash zone, which gets wet from wave splash at high tide, but is never under water, to the lower zone, which is exposed only during the most extreme low tides. Organisms that live here endure many stresses, including winter cold and ice, alternating exposure and submersion, pollution, and the danger of being ripped away by waves during a storm. This book will help you identify organisms that live in and on tidepools, rocks, pilings, and wharves, and understand how they survive. Illustrated with the author's clear and detailed line drawings. 64 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

MINER'S SUNDAY, 1849. by Charles B. Gillespie.
This story is set in Coloma, the California gold discovery site of 1848. But it might have happened at any of the gold-rush sites of the West--Virginia City, Cripple Creek, the Klondike--and it probably did, but only on Sunday. Town was a lively place the one day the mines were shut down, with a mix of nationalities engaging in gambling, auctions, horse-racing, shopping for clothes and supplies, eating, drinking, brawling, and general tom-foolery as you might expect from a bunch of young men from all over the world who were off to a get-rich adventure. Illustrations are from early sources, including the original article of 1891, Frederic Remington, and the Crocker Art Museum. 16 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

PIONEER DAYS IN SAN FRANCISCO. by John Williamson Palmer.
The City's history from July 8, 1846, when the American flag first waved over the city (then called Yerba Buena), continuing through the early days of Mormon settlement, the total disruption during the Gold Rush of 1849, the terrible inflation of prices, the polyglot composition of the populace, and of City Fathers, Vigilance Committees, and fires. This history goes only to the mid-1850s, truly a pioneer history of just the first, frontier decade of the great City by the Bay. See not only from where the physical base of San Francisco came, but gain insight into how its people of mixed ethnic origin, thrown together in common destiny, sought means and institutions to secure their future, helping perhaps to bring the city to be one of the most open-minded on earth. Period engravings. 32 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

SILVER SAN JUAN:
the mines and high scenery in Colorado's southwest mountains--in 1882. by Ernest Ingersoll.
Presents early sketches of this region where the Colorado Rocky Mountains culminate in their grandest scenic display, including Silverton, Rico, Animas Canyon, Capitol City, Lake City. Although mines and mining are the prime topic in this early history, and the writing gives a good picture of mining in the mountain West, the author admired the landscapes greatly, too. It was a time for that in America, when national pride in Western grandeur was swelling. Silver San Juan was a great place for such pride, for the region has been called "The Switzerland of America". Most of the region's minerals have now been removed, but the economic input from that source is replaced by tourists who come enthusiastically in numbers. For those who want to know the background of the region they visit, this book is for them. Reprinted from 1882. Illustrations by Thomas Moran and others. 24 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

THE WILD SHEEP. by John Muir.
Here the early naturalist-writer glorifies the mountain sheep, or bighorn, of the Sierra Nevada. In Muir's time (1881 is the date of this writing), sheep were still to be seen on his High Sierra rambles. He notes the distribution of sheep and their various species as well as their physical characteristics, and he also describes their mountain home where they lived, "the happy wanderers, perhaps relishing the beauty as well as the taste of the lovely flora on which they feed." But as always his finest sections are where he describes the sheep themselves and how they move about on cliff walls, fine four-legged mountaineers. Today, park and wildlife agencies are reestablishing populations of wild sheep in the Sierra Nevada and elsewhere, and we may thank Muir in part for this, as his writing helped keep our appreciation alive for them. Reviewed by Chief Park Naturalists at Yosemite and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Period engravings. 32 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.
