[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Otto Mears’ life was a blaze of activity. He was orphaned at two, ended up on his own in San Francisco at age eleven. From there he became a citizen, fought in the Civil War, built roads in the Colorado mountains where no one thought it possible, built railroads connecting remote mountain towns, among many other endeavors. It is because of Otto Mears’ insistence that the dome of Colorado’s capitol is gold, not cooper as originally planned.
