Recommends it for: Everyone in Denver!
Steve is a good friend of mine and his latest book about the good the bad and the ugly of Denver's history was both fascinating and provided me with a new way to look at the city as I think about what happened here. Did you know that back in the day there were nothing but brothels and bars and no churches or schools in Denver??!! This is good stuff!

I loved this book--a collection of short articles on Denver's rich history--from the Gold Rush, to weather disasters, Denver proves itself a city that is down but never out and comes roaring back from the brink every single time.

Fascinating little snippets in Denver's history. I do wish there had been pictures, as I love old photos.

Recommend to anyone who has an interest in local history. Quick read.
