HIDDEN HISTORY OF DENVER by ELIZABETH VICTORIA WALLACE
Elizabeth explores this amazing city. Time has washed away so many unusual stories—from the dark days of nineteenth-century Law and Order League lynching, and the KKK’s later rise and fall to the heroism of suffragettes and the touching plight of the gypsies.
Elizabeth has discovered so many intriguing stories. She introduces readers to characters like world heavyweight boxing champion Charles L. “Sonny” Liston, hit-man turned rodeo promoter Leland Varain, aka “Diamond Jack,” and the city’s daring wall dogs, whose hand-painted building advertisements are fading reminders of a bygone Denver.
Elizabeth's book can be found in Barnes and Noble and on Amazon, plus all good book stores and sources. ISBN is 9781609493509 or you can contact the History Press directly.$19.99.
