According to his own biographical informaton, Mr. Vories lived on Glade Park from 1962 to 1991: "I summered my cattle with my friend George Morehouse until, with his help, I bought my ranch in 1970. I would not have gotton some of that ranch had it not been for the help of two sheepmen, Glen Gore, and Irving Beard... Those days on that ranch with my wife and family are the happiest of my life. I thank God continually for the blessing of having been allowed to live a big part of my lifelong dream on that ranch." --Eugene Vories

Western Slope History
EARLY DAYS ON THE WESTERN SLOPE OF COLORADO
The full name of this book is: “Early Days on the Western Slope of Colorado and Campfire Chats with Otto Mears the Pathfinder from 1870-1882.” It was first published in 1913. The author, Sidney Jocknick, came to this area at a time when it was going through a sweeping transition. He had the foresight to record his own personal experiences, and other events he knew of. These events include the story of the ill fated fellow travelers of Alfred Packer; life at the Ute agency and home of Chief Ouray; the Meeker Massacre; the story of Otto Mears (although not as chummy as an actual fireside chat); Ute history, and many Western Slope happenings. It is the Old Testament of Western Slope history. Of course the older editions are more valuable (and pricey), but the newer reprints by Western Reflections made this important work more available.
