Sample text

The scattered inhabitants of this region were so isolated from the heart of affairs in Mexico that many may not have realized that political changes had occurred. At this time (the 1840s), the only white settlers in the territory now called Colorado were a few independent trappers, traders, adventurers, and employees of the American Fur Company. There were a few "civilized" Indians and Mexicans in the south and bands of "savages" (as they were then called) who roamed the plains (Pawnees, Cheyennes, Arapahoes, Utes, and Comanches, among others).

Any political history of Colorado should certainly be a history of the people who have lived here. And who has lived here longer than the Native Americansthe Apaches, the Pawnees, the Comanches, the Utes, the Cheyennes, the Kiowas? Unfortunately, they kept no written record of their adventures and their national existence in the area we now call Colorado.
