Sisters of Courage
March 23, 2019 –
In "Sisters of Courage" Dave follows one family through the turmoil of the last half of the 19th century. The Civil War, Westward Expansion, the Panic of 1893 are all well known historical events that take on new meaning with this story of their impact on a single family.
Buffeted by the winds of national events, the family starts their life over yet again as Annie and Kittie Harbison homesteaded in our peaceful mountain valley. Walk with them from Denver as they chose to operate a dairy ranch to supply fresh milk to the expanding Grand Lake population.
Come and enjoy their story leading up to the development (and underdevelopment) of Rocky Mountain National Park. Learn how the Haribson rach buildings were removed to allow their ranch to become the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.
