Book description
The roll call of Colorado governors is varied and rich, including men "determined and dilatory, successful and unsuccessful, lucky and unlucky," with each administration contributing to the fabric of Colorado's colorful history. In this collection of short biographies, now updated to include Colorado's five most recent state administrators, former governor Dick Lamm and prolific historian Duane Smith portray the lives and accomplishments of 15 Colorado governors. From the fiery and feisty Davis Waite to the forgotten hero Ralph Carr, all the way up to Bill Owens and Bill Ritter, each distinct personality and time period is brought to life. With lively writing and telling anecdotes, Pioneers and Politicians is a first-rate resource as well as a great read.
