    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.
