In this carefully researched book, Janet Lecompte has made a significant contribution to.western history; specialists in the history of Colorado and the fur trade will find it indispensable. Granddaughter of the founder of the Francis W. Cragin Collection in Colorado Springs, Lecompte has shown herself worthy of her legacy, writing with care, insight, and precision about a little-known period in Colorado's history: the years following the halcyon days of Rocky Mountain beaver trapping and before the Pike's Peak gold rush and permanent settlement.
