"Linda Wommack’s latest book, Historic Colorado Mansions & Castles, brings Leadville to life and gives great insight to this “City in the Clouds” in its early days.  August Meyer’s impact on the fledgling city is carefully portrayed, as well as the “little mansion on the hill” he built for his bride, Emma.  Linda’s attention to detail is evident throughout the chapter, while providing an interesting and informative read.  Well done!"


—Maureen Scanlon, Regional Director, Healy House, Leadville, Colorado


"This book creates excellent imagery of the fine ladies and gentlemen of Colorado’s yesteryear in their elegant homes.  Wommack’s authentic descriptions and historical knowledge will not only take you back in time but also compel you to visit the mansions in the present."


—Maretta Characky, Coordinator, the Robison Mansion & Carriage House


"Interesting and easy to read, Wommack’s peek into Colorado’s majestic homes will entertain and educate everyone who picks up the book.  The stories behind the buildings are brought to life through her detailed and spirited descriptions of the families who lived there, the towns where they were located and the happenings of the time period.  If you haven’t visited the featured locations, you will want to after reading this book.  This treasure of information and narratives would be a wonderful addition to any collection."


—Deb Darrow, Rosemount Museum Executive Director, Pueblo, Colorado
