Abstract boundaries define the borders of Colorado, which suggests it could be a state without genuine identity. But Colorado sprawls across three major landforms, and its lifescapes help define two major junctures: where biological north meets biological south and where biological west meets biological east. From this emerges a fabulous wildlife diversity that gives Colorado a unique identity. So, what if Life itself became the destination for vacations? Where could you go? What could you find? How would you find it once there? And how do you get started? The answers all come alive in “Searching for Life in Colorado.”
Some wildlife vanished from Colorado before people came here; some wildlife vanished from Colorado after people arrived. Of those species no longer here, some survive outside Colorado but others are gone forever. Each has a story that enriches what we know about where we live.
