Reviews of Colorado Books

The Center for Colorado and the West (CC&W) at the Auraria Library offers a website with lists and reviews of new books about Colorado.  While the primary focus is on Colorado history, some titles on politics, natural resources, arts and culture, etc. are also included.  So if you are interested in learning about life in our state, check out this website to get some great ideas for what to read next (and in some cases, what books to avoid). 

One of the books that has been recently reviewed on the site is Colorado Newspapers:  A History and Inventory, 1859-2000.  This brand-new guide to Colorado newspaper history has been published by CC&W and is available from our library.  This book is a great reference listing nearly all of the newspapers published in Colorado during its first 150 years.  To find actual Colorado newspaper articles, be sure to check out the Colorado State Library’s Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection.
