Again in this series, the perspective here is this time largely historical and the ramifications are fewer (no flora and fauna; no folklore, etc.) this catches much of color of a physically magnetic, inherently dramatic country. From its ageless legend- the promise of gold- which dates back a thousand years, and after its many times attempted opening up had been accomplished, one follows the influx of men who were to form this region- fur traders and mountain men, missionaries, gold seekers, settlers. There are the gold strikes and fade-outs; the silver and the great silver crash; and finally the at Cripple Creek which featured the strange character- Winfield Stratton. There is al something of the bad blood to which all this led; of the farms and cattle; of the cult and the present day artistic impetus to go west; etc. etc. All in all, for lovers of (visitors to) this country, this is a picturesque presentation.
