Overview

A story over 10 years in the making, this is the first part in a series of stories that chronicle the family history of the Calhoun family in Denver, Colorado. It’s the legacy of the Calhoun! It all started with Elias. Excerpt from “The Legacy of the Calhoun: A Mountain Man's Life Journey in the West” by Elias Calhoun, from Forward: I’m glad I wrote this book. My story had to be told. It’s my legacy. Denver, Colorado stands at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountains, which in Cheyenne means, “Rock on the Horizon.” The gateway to the West in the center of the United States has an unsurpassed beauty. There are over 300 sunny days a year in Colorado. Denver is so close to those Rockies, where American history unfolded, dreams were lost and found; all in the hallowed high country and surrounding areas. In the heart of Denver, a family emerged on the horizon like a stable, solid rock. The Calhoun's were a prominent family in Denver – legends personified like the priceless marble found in layer upon layer of geologic time. Each individual in the Calhoun line, dating all the way back to Everett Calhoun in the early 1800s, made an indelible mark on the world. This action, adventure and romance story follows The Legacy of the Calhoun from humble beginnings to its possible end. The story spans the generations from 1856 to the not-too-distant future; all taking place in colorful Colorado and the Denver. Without legacy, what is left? Will the world forget the Calhoun name…? Elias Calhoun was more than a mere writer. He was a legend, a Colorado Territory celebrity. Born in 1856, he was an adventurer who worked all trades from trapping to tailoring to gambling to womanizing. His famous name went with the early days of Denver, Colorado among the likes of Speer, Stapleton, Peña, Webb, Hickenlooper and Dale.
