Riassunto: There are over 200 articles contributed by 34 writers, living and dead, who describe tragedy, comedy, and early history of the area from 1880 to 1980 when women were women and men were men and the history of some of the largest silver mines and stories that were passed down from generation to generation.
Creede was one of the wildest mining camps in the 1880's and the town where Bob Ford, killer of Jesse James, was killed; where Soapy Smith, Bat Masterson, Ed O'Kelly, Calamity Jane and Poker Alice lived it up during the boom town days.
Read how it became a quaint tourist town with a lively well-known repertory theatre and the home of famous watercolorist, Stephen Quiller.
The book takes in the towns of South Fork, Del Norte, Monte Vista and Alamosa, all in the San Luis Valley.
