Out where the west begins : profiles, visions & strategies of early western business leaders by Philip Anschutz( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1800 and 1920, an extraordinary cast of bold innovators and entrepreneurs--individuals such as Cyrus McCormick, Brigham Young, Henry Wells and James Fargo, Fred Harvey, Levi Strauss, Adolph Coors, J. P. Morgan, and Buffalo Bill Cody--helped lay the groundwork for what we now call the American West. They were people of imagination and courage, adept at maneuvering the rapids of change, alert to opportunity, persistent in their missions. They had big ideas they were not afraid to test. They stitched the country together with the first transcontinental railroad, invented the Model A and built the roads it traveled on, raised cities and supplied them with water and electricity, established banks for immigrant populations, entertained the world with film and showmanship, and created a new form of western hospitality for early travelers. Not all were ideal role models. Most, however, once they had made their fortunes, shared them in the form of cultural institutions, charities, libraries, parks, and other amenities that continue to enrich lives in the West today. Out Where the West Begins profiles some fifty of these individuals, tracing the arcs of their lives, exploring their backgrounds and motivations, identifying their contributions, and analyzing the strategies they developed to succeed in their chosen fields. Working with western scholars William J. Convery and Thomas J. Noel, Anschutz has brought a unique perspective to his subject in this engaging book of essays--Tattered Cover Bookstore summary, edited from book jacket

Summit of destiny : taming the Pikes Peak country, 1858-1918 by Francis J Pierson( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colorado was born just as the dark clouds of civil war rumbled across the American landscape. The discovery of gold along the South Platte River in 1858 would have profound consequences for Native American inhabitants--and for a nation wrestling with slavery. In rapid order, the cottonwood studded hunting grounds were stampeded by countless waves of prospectors, confidence men, and ladies of easy virtue--all clambering to the Pikes Peak country eager to turn a quick profit. The precious yellow metal also aroused competing claims--and the hopes of the Confederacy, which went so far as to attempt an invasion. But the lure of easy wealth and conquest proved elusive, and most of the adventurers left disillusioned. Yet the eastern flank of the Rocky Mountains became, for those hearty souls who stayed, a veritable promised land. Today their names are sprinkled across the map--Byers Peak, Moffat Tunnel, Teller County, Palmer Lake, Mount Evans, and stately Pikes Peak. This is the story of those irrepressible argonauts who forged an empire at the apex of a continent. Each in their own way ascended the lofty Summit of Destiny
