CANDY MOULTON. Roadside History of Colorado. Mountain Press Publishing Company. 288 pages; paperback, $20, mountain-press.com.

Colorado’s roads wind through country that is steeped in history, sometimes tracing routes with a history of their own, from the Santa Fe Trail to the Million Dollar Highway. Roadside History of Colorado can guide you through ancient pueblos, perilous trails, mining boomtowns, and modern ski resorts. Mesmerizing tales of adventure and tragedy including cannibalism on the Starvation Trail, the infamous Sand Creek Massacre, and the Big Thompson River flood of 1976 will thrill both Coloradans and visitors.
