“Dave Lively’s presentation “People of the Kawuneeche Valley” is superb. Probably no one knows more or tells the story of the valley so well. Dave’s own family has deep roots in that gorgeous mountain valley on the headwaters of the Colorado River, known by the Arapaho as Kawuneeche or Coyote Creek. Dave provides a unique mix of family history, hos own scholarship and his experience leading tours of that fabled valley noted for its dude ranches, spectacular scenery, trout fishing and moose galore.”
