after driving the Million Dollar Highway and reading markers about folks like Otto Mears and Idarado Mining Co, we stopped here and found several publications (some quite rare and $$ and others less so) on local and regional history. The owner is quite helpful and...More

As other reviewers have pointed out, there is definitely more to look at than just books. And as my husband is an avid reader of Colorado history, he was thrilled at how large that section was. And the owner was indeed kind enough to impart...More

Robert was a great host and the bookstore was a veritable treasure chest of fine books and great atmosphere. Hard-to-find books seemed to be his specialty. A great visit and most enjoyable time spent in this cozy bookstore. Bibliophiles will find a new home here!

A great local book store. A lots of local based history books, many that I haven't seen before. And the owner creates his own sand paintings. He promises that they are guaranteed for his life time.

We visited and reviewed the hiking books displayed. The owner, Robert visited a long time with us and made an excellent recommendation for the Perimeter Trail map. Loved the store and the very helpful owner. :)

I love this store! Everytime we visit Ouray I have to stop to grab a book for the trip home! It is full of neat items and a wide selection of books. The owner is also VERY nice and prices are reasonable. Would highly recommend!

This bookstore is a very special place. It's extremely well curated. Not only is there a large selection of "Colorado" specific books, to appeal to the tourists (like me), there is a very thoughtful selection of YA and "adult" fiction. I've lived in large cities...More
