Chief Left Hand is an essential read for anyone interested in Colorado history Being from Missouri I m not very familiar with the state s history even though I live here I grew up in the Gateway to the West but obviously don t know near as much about Western history as I thought Chief Left Hand is the biography of the man who tried to bring peace to his people and the white settlers during the 1860 s It illuminates the people behind many of the area s namesakes including Niwot Left Hand Canyon Mount Evans and certain Denver streets such as Evans Curtis Wynkoop and It illustrates how the cities of Denver and Boulder came to be settled in the years running up to the Sand Creek Massacre where Chief Left Hand allegedly perished Until I read this I was unaware how much the Sand Creek Massacre itself has been depicted andor referenced in film television novels and music Margaret Coel even posits that if Sand Creek hadn t occurred the 25 years of warfare between settlers and natives considered to be the longest war in US history might not have even happened
