Well researched and written, a fascinating history of the Caribou town site and the nearby mining. Once you start reading, you will be hard pressed to put it down and when you finish you will hop in the Jeep and go exploring. The author did much of the original research for his master's thesis decades ago and then continued to collect information on the area resulting in this book. The photographs of the old town are wonderful. It is difficult to imagine all of the buildings and many people who once lived in that tight little valley. Today little remains of the once busy town and most people who visit the area to backcountry ski and hike the Indian Peaks Wilderness are unaware of the local history. If you are going to Caribou, this little gem of a book will make your visit so much more interesting. Get a copy while you still can find one. If you visit, bring your map and compass so you can explore old roads, trails, and remnants of mining equipment. The view from the top of Caribou hill alone makes the trip worth, more so if you take this book from your knapsack and identify the locations of the old mines and buildings.

As someone who lives in Eldora, and has spent a ton of time up on Caribou Flats, this book is simply an invaluable description of a time gone by. Lot's of historical info, backed with a more human side to keep the reader interested. It's amazing to think that in the 1870's, 3,000 people lived right on the Continental Divide, in some of the harshest conditions around, searching for silver. Even more amazing, that just 30 years later, the town was basically gone.
Today the only occupants of Caribou are the caretaker of one of the remnant mines, a few mountain bikers, hikers, elk and other wildlife. It's a little eerie riding through this area, with all the ghosts wandering about.
Cool read, highly recommended.
