The Mines of Colorado
The Colorado Gold Rush, also known as the Pike's Peak Gold Rush, occurred in the late 1850s. Many of those travelling West to California would have had their first experiences in the mines of Colorado. Hollister presents an expansive history and summary of the area and those who came to mine it. He provides detailed specifics to location and quantities of minerals recovered.

This is a reprint of the 1867 book. The first 6 chapters are OK but then it goes county by county talking about the mining. If you're a geologist you might enjoy it. I couldn't get through that part. I'll keep this for reference. Read full review
