The birth of Colorado : a Civil War perspective by Duane A Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1861, Colorado was a newly named territory. Four years later it was forever changed, by the Civil War that had been raging back East and by its own development and the evolution of mining. The Colorado that emerged in the spring of 1865 was no longer the frontier that had found itself in a war. That frontier, that time, that way of life, all had passed. This is the story of Colorado and its people during the years of the Civil War, 1861-1865. It is not, however, a military history. Using original sources ranging from letters, diaries, journals, and reminiscences to government reports and newspaper stories, the book captures an important period in Colorado's mining, political, and economic development. -- from book jacket

"Inspired in 1953 by composer Douglas Moore's interest in the Tabors' story and funded by the Central City Opera House Association, the opera came together through a unique combination of hard work and serendipity. Smith relates how key people - including investors and historians in addition to creative talent - turned Moore's idea into a reality and brought the story of the Tabors to millions of opera fans worldwide. In addition, Smith compares the opera's libretto with historical reality, and the book even includes a chapter on the production written by John Moriarty, who conducted the opera in 1981, 1988, and 1996."

A tale of two towns : a mining and a farming community in the 1890s by Duane A Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sandwich [Illinois] and Durango [Colorado], represented a way of life in the United States that reached its peak between the 1870's and World War II. The two towns ... were, respectively, a farming community and a mining community. They were selected for this study partly because I have always been fascinated by the similarities and differences between two communities with such diverse and yet hauntingly similar economic backgrounds and histories. They were also chosen because of my deep roots in both."--Preface
