Abstract:

Denver turned 150 just a few years ago -- not too shabby for a city so down on its luck in 1868 that Cheyenne boosters deemed it "too dead to bury". Still, most of the citys history is a recent memory: Denvers entire story spans just two human lifetimes. In this book eleven authors illustrate how pioneers built enduring educational, medical, and transportation systems; how Denvers social and political climate contributed to the elevation of women; how Denver residents wrestled with -- and exploited -- the citys natural features; and how diverse cultural groups became an essential part of the citys fabric. By showing how the city rose far above its humble roots, the authors illuminate the many ways that Denver residents have never stopped imagining a great city. Published in time for the opening of the new History Colorado Center in Denver in 2012, this book hints at some of the social, economic, legal, and environmental issues that Denverites will have to consider over the next 150 years.
