Boulder by Silvia Pettem

Book Description

BOULDER: EVOLUTION OF A CITY has captivated newcomers, tourists, and long time residents for years with its dramatic visual and narrative presentation of the birth and development of Boulder. In this updated edition, 322 photographs -- more than 90 of them current -- capture landmarks, buildings, major events, and quiet moments from the 1860s to 2006. Photographs showing the same locations at several intervals in history reveal Boulder's continuum from past to present. Pettem devotes the first chapter to an introduction of the early photographers whose work appears throughout the book. Moving outward from the central business district as development did, each subsequent chapter focuses on a particular area in Boulder, with an introductory essay followed by historic and contemporary photographs with detailed captions.

Someone's Daughter by Silvia Pettem Someone's Daughter, Hardback (October 2009)

In 1954, two college students are hiking outside Boulder, Colorado, when they stumble upon the nude and battered body of a young woman. A subsequent investigation turns up nothing, and the unidentified girl is buried. Pettem explores forensics of both the 1950s and today, as a new search attempts to identify the victim--and her killer.

Colorado Mountains and Passes by Silvia Pettem Colorado Mountains and Passes, Paperback (January 1991)

Some of the most amazing views you will ever see from your car are in Colorado. It is relatively easy to climb to more than 10,000 feet on many of the drives showcased in this book. An excellent map and detail directions can send you to new heights!
