    It Happened In Colorado By: James A. Crutchfield

    The book It Happened In Colorado, was written by James A. Crutchfield and is a book about thirty-four specific events that happened here in Colorado. All of these events together helped shape the history of the state of Colorado and how this westward land came to be. These events include explorations of famous explorers, the lives of mountain men, the many gold and silver rushes, the numerous and bloody massacres of the Indians, the cannibalism of Alfred Packer, the great diamond hoax, and the formation and downfall of the small mountains towns. I liked reading this book because of the fascinating stories about events that you might never have known happened right here in Colorado and the details that came along with them. One thing that you might notice about these stories is that they are very short stories about huge parts in our history and that you might have to read other materials to get the before and after details of these events if you want to know more about what really happened. This book would be a good read for students in at least sixth or seventh grade due to a few stories about death, massacres, and cannibalism. Also for anyone else that would like to learn about the particular events that happened in our states history. After reading this book I have found that I have learned quite a bit more about my native states' history, and how Colorado came to be a state and how people lived in the past.

    It Happened in Colorado Book Review by James A. Crutchfield

    While reading this book I had many thoughts about this book. At first I thought it was going to end being another one of those boring droning facts books, but by surprise very entertaining and loads of information that I had never know about Colorado.<BR/>What I most enjoyed about this book is that it gave you the option to experience life as it was before our time. You were able to see what events shaped our existence as it is now and the change from what was to now. Some things that I did not like about this book were that it did not give insight into some of the more recent events in Colorado¿s history. I wish they had given more events that dealt with more recent events that some could relate to. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that wanted to explore or just find out more about Colorado¿s history that did not know before. It would be a good read for those that in high school or above. It gives you good background knowledge into Colorado¿s history so it would a good source for information for a research project on special events. In the book it had multiple events about people leading the way and treading new trails for others and a lot of the travelers going west in search for the gold mines and most important the year that we were granted our state independence. I found this book to be very beneficial to me because now I know that much more about my home state. I give this book 4 out of 5.
