Eagle County Characters: Historic Tales of a Colorado Mountain Valley by Kathy Heicher

Long before the first ski runs were ever carved into the mountains of Vail and Beaver Creek, Eagle County drew adventurous settlers and pioneers who brought life to the mines and the Eagle River Valley. Allow local journalist and historian Kathy Heicher to introduce you to the Doll brothers as they establish their ranching and business legacy. Ride a stagecoach with Sarah Doherty, Cattle Queen of the Badlands. Follow Jake Borah through bear country with President Theodore Roosevelt and his “hunting cabinet.” Trail cattle alongside Ellis “Bearcat” Bearden and his ranching family. Meet a cast of characters whose stories arc across decades and reach the very roots of this beautiful mountain valley.

Eagle County Characters: Historic Tales of a Colorado Mountain Valley by Kathy Heicher is available from the History Press and fine Eagle County bookshops.
