Summary: "Part of our heritage lies with the hardy people of the rugged gold and silver era, the mines where they worked and the towns where they lived. Colorado Mining Camps presents 207 communities which were significant in the Colorado mining boom. There were colorful characters of all kinds --- heroes and heroines, con artists and gamblers, itinerate preachers and dance hall girls, tin stars and gunslingers, millionaires and paupers, thieves and fools, braggarts and optimists. This is their story, and these are their towns."
