Virtual Book Club - Settling The Wind: A Frontier Historic Colorado

Amazon- $15.99 paperback  |  $0.99 Kindle  |  $3.99 Audiobook

The harsh and rugged Colorado frontier of 1875 is not the type of place most would consider suitable for a recent widow to establish a home of her own. Yet that is exactly what Henrietta Schodde determines she will do as she impetuously buys a cabin in the newly forming settlement of Estes Park. Despite assurances from Henrietta that the locals appear amiable, her relatives are concerned and recruit the assistance of long-time family friend Collan Wallace, who unbeknownst to Henrietta, has also just begun homesteading in the area. The last thing Collan desires is to watch over the woman who has been his nemesis since childhood. But the pair quickly realize that there is more than each other to fight about when they discover an unscrupulous Englishman, Lord Dunraven, is hungry for their land. Endearing and engaging, Settling the Wind, is historical fiction based on actual events that reveals the courage of Colorado’s pioneers in the face of more struggles than they could have imagined.

Conifer Historical Society & Museum

Mission

The Mission of the Conifer Historical Society and Museum is to share the region's legacy by collecting, preserving and exhibiting historical and cultural materials.

Background Statement

One day, a group of Conifer residents was sitting around the dinner table together and the topic of history came up. "Do you remember who used to live on that house way down on Kuester Road? What about that old Cemetery off Pleasant Park Road? Do you know anything about that?" And so the discussion went, and The Conifer Historical Society and Museum was born. Incorporated in January 2009, we have grown and now call the former Conifer Junction Schoolhouse our home. Our purpose now is to share the region's legacy by collecting, preserving and exhibiting historical and cultural materials and provide public access to services, collections, exhibits and a research library.
