17 West, Elliott The Contested Plains Indians, Goldseekers, and the Rush to Colorado
Lawrence, KS University Press of Kansas 1998 0700608915 / 9780700608911 Hardcover New in New dust jacket 
B&W Illustrations & maps; 9.59 X 6.47 X 1.39 inches; xxiv, 422 pages; Hard cover is grey cloth with copper lettering on spine. Pages are clean and tight. This is a NEW book. Clean DJ. Illustrated with 27 b/w maps and illustrations. "Elliott West writes an environmental history of the Colorado Gold Rush of 1859 that inspired over 100,000 people to swarm to the region and the resulting clash with Indians during the early 1860s. West stresses the role of environmental imagination in this process. He argues that before 1858, the plains and mountains of the region were seen as an inhospitable land to be crossed over to the Pacific. After the discovery of gold, it was transformed via promotional literature and a fevered national imagination into a prosperous vision of abundant gold, fertile farms, and as a neatly interlocking piece of the growing nation. Of course, this vision did not reflect reality: West insightfully points out that far more money flowed to Colorado than out of its gold mines: from a financial standpoint the rush itself was actually extremely costly. This vision ran up against the vision of the plains Indians. West discusses the longer history of the region, stretching back thousands of years, before highlighting the amazing creativity on the part of Cheyennes, Comanches, and other groups during the 16th-18th centuries, as migrant Indians reshaped their entire worldview with adoption of the horse. By using this new technology, West points out that they were able to harness abundant source of energy (grass) that had previously been useless to them".
