Pueblo, Hardscrabble, and Greenhorn were among the very first white settlements in Colorado. In their time they were the most westerly settlements in American territory, and they attracted a lively and varied population of mavericks from more civilized parts of the world-from what became New Mexico to the south and from as far east as England. "A significant and first-class work concerning the northern fringe of the American Southwest along the Arkansas River, east of the front range of the mountains of Colorado."--Arizona and the West "I loved Janet Lecompte's Pueblo, Hardscrabble, Greenhorn--it is one of those rare gems . . . that make a part of the West, its time, and its people come vividly and unforgettably alive."--Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
