Life on Brush Creek
by Helen Dice
This first-person account by a ranch wife is the story of the challenges and grueling work that was a daily part of operating a ranch in the 1930s through the 1950s. Dice’s words also reveal her love of the mountain valley near Eagle.
Before Eagle County became known for its world-class ski resorts and high-end real estate, the county had a colorful history of nomadic Utes, adventurous mountain men, optimistic miners, and hard-working homesteaders. The Eagle County Historical Society works to preserve and share the county’s rich history. Knowing and understanding the people and forces that shaped the past makes us a better community today.
