More Info on This Book: Steamboat Springs

New from Arcadia Publishing and local authors, David and Cathy Ellis, is Steamboat Springs, the latest volume in the popular Images of America series.

Known as Ski Town, U.S.A., for its deep powder and its growing crop of winter Olympians, Steamboat Springs was named nearly two centuries ago by French trappers. Hearing the “chug, chug” of one of many hot springs, they supposed they had reached navigable waters. For centuries, the area’s abundant fish, game, and mineral springs drew the Yampatika, a Ute subtribe. In the 1870s, a rush of settlers came, first for precious metals, followed by more renewable riches—the lush summer pastures—and next the extraction of carbonized forests (coal) millions of years old. Ironically, real wealth ultimately fell free from leaden winter skies, and this Routt County community experienced a boom like few places on earth. Winter sports, including ski jumping, with some world records, made Steamboat Springs famous worldwide.

Highlights of Steamboat Springs:
• Expanding on images at the Tread of Pioneers Museum, this book contains more than 200 vintage images.
• Emphasizes the man in nature and the wonders of Steamboat’s wilderness surroundings.
• Features F.M. Light and his grown children using their “Big Eight” sled on the cover.
