Abstract:

Relives the grand hopes, dreams, loves, and adventures of generations of residents in Centennial, Colorado-- from their risky attempts to establish a settlement in 1795 through the politics and power plays of the 20th century. Begins with French and Scottish trappers interacting with Native Americans and follows the increasing conflicts as more permanent settlers arrive. Shows how the town of Centennial is founded by the young Mennonite Levi Zendt and his bride-to-be. Looks at the effects of the American Civil War on the settlement and the disputes between cattle ranchers and farmers. Shows the plight of Mexican residents who find their rights threatened by a real estate tycoon from back East. Examines more recent dirty politics as two contestants face off over the future of the town and its dwindling natural resources.
