Overview

Journey with Silvia Pettem through Boulder's history in Boulder: A Sense of Time & Place Revisited. Watch the evolution from a frontier mining town to the "Athens of the West." Learn of murder and bootleggers in the 1920s, survive the Great Depression and follow Boulder's postwar growing pains as the city matures and residents reflect on its past. Each article is a story in itself but only a small piece of what makes Boulder the city it is today.

Meet the Author

Silvia Pettem's roots are in the East, but her heart--and passion for writing about history--is in the West. During her forty-year career as a writer, researcher and historian, she's written a local history newspaper column, has authored more than a dozen books and has served on nearly every historically related board in Boulder, Colorado. Her research has extended from fleshing out the life of a Victorian female professor to solving the identity of a fifty-five-year-old cold-case homicide. Silvia, a grandmother of four, lives in the mountains west of Boulder with her husband, Ed, and cat, Nellie Bly.
