Centennial

Michener details the story of a Colorado settlement, Centennial, from geology and  prehistoric animals all the way up to the modern day. There are the native Americans, the trappers and early settlers, cattle ranching vs. sheep herding, con artists, the circus coming to town, the horrors of the Dust Bowl, and the modern problems of today.
