This volume begins with the Ute Indians and early prospectors near the
mining town of Rico and its subsequent development. Newspaper accounts
tell the story, as mining paid off, and the RGS was built to Rico. The
story continues with the meeting of rails below Rico in 1890, near Red
Rock siding. The mining branch to Black Hawk and Enterprise is covered
in maps and pictures, along with early RGS yard scenes at Rico. The
Rico coal chute is featured, as well as downtown Rico and residential
buildings. Contained on the 496 pages are 350 black-and-white views and
50 full-color pictures.
