Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Colorado—land of golden aspens, majestic canyons, and sparkling, snow-capped mountains, of cool, clear streams where bear and elk, bison and beaver, coyotes and mountain lions come to drink—is a nature-lovers paradise. Colorado is a place where one can still encounter the pristine beauty of the American West. Yet, alongside this astounding host of natural wonders, the state boasts an impressive list of man-made marvels as well. Indeed, Colorado, an eclectic mix of glory and glamour, at once rugged and chic, may come as close to paradise as any of us are likely to get.

A state of extraordinary variety, Colorado is home to both vast open spaces and to Sunday-evening traffic jams. Aspen Valley is packed with ski resorts, chalets, fine restaurants, sophisticated boutiques, and shops. Yet just a few miles away—and a world apart—is tiny Redstone, where industrialist Cleve Osgood once ruled. Clearly, Colorado contains a multitude of contrasts. From the metropolis of Denver to the old ghost town of Marble; from the quiet desolation of the Sante Fe Trail to the buzz of Central City's casino; from Denver's homespun Museum of the American West to its cutting-edge Center for the Performing Arts; from trendy Durango and Telluride to the stark splendor of rock formations like the Garden of the Gods; from historic Bent's Old Fort to the serenely majestic Rocky Mountains—Colorado, A Photographic Tour, a superbly crafted portrait in words and pictures, perfectly captures the many charms of the Centennial state.

Colorado, A Photographic Tour is the perfect souvenir for anyone familiar with Colorado, and a treasured gift for anyone eager for a sense of the enduing beauty of this fabled state.

Synopsis:

Carol M. Highsmith, a modern-day historical photographer, and Ted Landphair, a Voice of America writer and reporter, have joined forces to create a beautiful series of travel/photography books with a distinctively fresh design. With illustrated maps, black-and-white archival photos, stunning full-color photographs, and essential information highlighting each important area, the Photographic Tour series is a must for every type of traveler — from the extravagant to the budget-conscious to the armchair.
