School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Blashfield traces the history, culture, and natural wonders of Colorado. She glosses quickly over the Native American tribes, settlement by outsiders, and the mining that brought further development to the territory and highlights a few famous Coloradans before exploring the major towns and economic developments. Chapters are devoted to recreation, the natural world, and the tourism that is so important to the state's economy. The author includes up-to-date information about population, economics, and elected officials. The "Fast Facts" section provides answers to standard homework questions. Use of high-quality, full-color photographs and reproductions throughout enhances the presentation. The maps are accurate but in some cases faulty typesetting distracts from the otherwise high level of production and design. An update of a solid library resource.-Mary B.
