Tales of the Colorado Pioneers

Hill, Alice Polk


Pierson & Gardner



319 pp. Illustrations in text by Eugene Field. (8vo) original brown cloth. First Edition.

A lively account of the early days in Colorado, compiled by a Denver newspaperwoman who decided to record on paper the yarns and recollections of the pioneers while they were still around to recount them. Her colleague Eugene Field contributed his drawings anonymously, and well he might. A revised and enlarged edition appeared in 1915. Bradford 2292 (second ed.); Howes H-469; Wymar & Depp 132; curiously overlooked by Adams.
