New Book Explores the History of The Uncompahgre Valley

More Info on This Book: The Uncompahgre Valley

New from Arcadia Publishing and local authors, Theajo “Tj” Davis and Royal C. “Whitey” Huff Sr., is The Uncompahgre Valley. This title is one of two recent Grand Junction area installments of the popular Images of America series.

Settlers of European heritage arrived in the Uncompahgre River Valley after the Ute tribe was ordered to reservation lands in Utah by the federal government in 1881. The Uncompahgre Valley is not a large one, it contains approximately 185,000 acres of irrigable land, but it is one of Colorado’s major agriculture and ranching areas. Over the past 130 years, the Uncompahgre and the Gunnison Rivers have unlocked the valley’s secret riches. This volume provides a snapshot of those accomplishments and struggles.

Highlights of The Uncompahgre Valley:
• The majority of the images have been donated from private collections of residents.
• Explores the history of the Gunnison Tunnel that made the land fertile.
• Reveals the untold stories of the determination of valley farmers.
