This is a thoroughly revised edition of the Historical Atlas of Colorado, which was coauthored by Tom Noel and published in 1994. Chock-full of the best and latest information on Colorado, this new edition features thirty new chapters, updated text, more than 100 color maps and 100 color photos, and a best-of listing of Colorado authors and books, as well as a guide to hundreds of tourist attractions. Colorado received its name (Spanish for “red”) after much debate and many possibilities, including Idaho (an “Indian” name meaning “gem of the mountains” later discovered to be a fabrication) and Yampa (Ute for “bear”). Noel includes other little-known but significant facts about the state, from its status as first state in the Union to elect women to its legislature, to its controversial “highest state” designation, elevated by the 2013 legalization of recreational cannabis. Noel and cartographer Carol Zuber-Mallison map and describe Colorado’s spectacular geography and its fascinating past. The book’s eight parts survey natural Colorado, from rivers and mountains to dinosaurs and mammals; history, from prehistoric peoples to twenty-first-century Color-oddities; mining and manufacturing, from the gold rush to alternative energy sources; agriculture, including wineries and brewpubs; transportation, from stagecoach lines to light rail; modern Colorado, from the New Deal to the present (including politics, history, and information on lynchings, executions, and prisons); recreation, covering not only hiking and skiing but also literary locales and Colorado in the movies; and tourism, encompassing historic landmarks, museums, and even cemeteries. In short, this book has information—and surprises—that anyone interested in Colorado will relish.

On Sunday April 27, 2003, 27-year old Aron Ralston set off for a day's hiking in the Utah canyons. Dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, Ralston, a seasoned climber, figured he'd hike for a few hours and then head off to work. 40 miles from the nearest paved road, he found himself on top of an 800-pound boulder. As he slid down and off of the boulder it shifted, trapping his right hand against the canyon wall. No one knew where he was; he had little water; he wasn't dressed correctly; and the boulder wasn't going anywhere. He remained trapped for five days in the canyon: hypothermic at night, de-hydrated and hallucinating by day. Finally, he faced the most terrible decision of his life: braking the bones in his wrist by snapping them against the boulder, he hacked through the skin, and finally succeeded in amputating his right hand and wrist. The ordeal, however, was only beginning. He still faced a 60-foot rappell to freedom, and a walk of several hours back to his car - along the way, he miraculously met a family of hikers, and with his arms tourniqued, and blood-loss almost critical, they heard above them the whir of helicopter blades; just in time, Aron was rescued and rushed to hospital. Since that day, Aron has had a remarkable recovery. He is back out on the mountains, with an artificial limb; he speaks to select groups on his ordeal and rescue; and amazingly, he is upbeat, positive, and an inspiration to all who meet him. This is the account of those five days, of the years that led up to them, and where he goes from here. It is narrative non-fiction at its most compelling.

Colorado has 53 14ers, more than 600 13ers, and hundreds of other peaks that can be reached without special equipment or expertise. Numerous guides dryly catalog these trails, but Best Summit Hikes in Colorado stands out from them all. Author James Dziezynski has meticulously selected 80+ of the state's absolute best peaks in more than 50 superlative hikes, and his opinionated narrative brings each route to life. Each summit is included because of a notable feature--whether it's the site of a ghost mine or airplane wreckage, has thundering waterfalls or colorful floral meadows, is the best summit for spotting wildlife or bringing out-of-town friends, or is very accessible. Some peaks offer unique opportunities, such as a trailhead accessible only via a steam-powered railroad. Several summits are described in no other publication. Covering all Colorado's major mountain ranges, including the well-known Sangre De Cristo, Gore, Sawatch, Indian Peaks, and Maroon Bell wilderness areas to the lesser-known Grenadiers, Medicine Bow, and Outer San Juan peaks, this distinctive guide makes it easy to select exactly the right hike for the right day, the right mood, and the right companions.

San Juan Mountains is the largest (17,000 square miles) mountain range in Colorado. The mountains are very diverse, from having several hundred acres large flat summits table mountains or mesas, to very steep and rugged Needle Mountains and everything in between. They are also most rugged and inaccessible. The Range extends from the south of Montrose in southwest Colorado to Abiquiu/Chama River, bordering with Jemez Mountains in New Mexico, see the map on the left. It has fourteen (fifteen) 14ers: Uncompahgre Peak 14,309', Mt. Wilson 14,246', El Diente Peak 14,159' (only 259' prominence), Mt. Sneffels 14,150', Mt. Eolus 14,083', Windom Peak 14,082', Sunlight Peak 14,059', Handies Peak 14,048', North Eolus 14,039' (only 189' prominence), Redcloud Peak 14,034', Wilson Peak 14,017', Wetterhorn Peak 14,015', San Luis Peak 14,014', and Sunshine Peak 14,001'. Recent measurements of Sunlight Spire revealed that it is the 15th San Juan non-ranked 14er with 14,000' and 215' prominence. The hardest to climb 14-ers are then Sunlight Spire (class 5.10), followed by Mount Wilson and Sunlight Peak, both class 4, by the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) ranking. There are three San Juan Centennial 13ers harder to climb: Jagged Mountain 13,824' (class 5.1), Teakettle Mountain (class 5.3) and Dallas Peak (class 5.3). The most impressive is the number of 13ers - there are 314 peaks, that make 43% of the all 13ers in Colorado. For comparison with European Alps, that cover approximately 5 times more area (85k square miles), there are 226 (with prominence of 300' or more) peaks in San Juan Mountains and only 51 summits in Alps (with prominence of 100m or 328' or more) over 4 kilometers high (13,123').
