Summary: "Historic Telluride in Rare Photographs chronicles the boom and bust cycles of Telluride, Placerville, Ames, Ophir, and Rico in southwestern Colorado from the 1860s through the 1940s. Every page brings to life, in unique pictures and words, those early days--the arrival of the prospectors, the golden days of mining, and early-day skiing. Journey back into Telluride's history through photographs and explanatory text."
