In 1933, youth unemployment in Colorado was 25 percent and another 29 percent were working only part-time. In that year, with the beginning of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) young men could go to work in Colorado’s national parks, state parks, national forests and other public lands. They could learn new job skills. This book takes you to the different CCC camps found in Colorado from 1933-1942. It contains several black and white photos from that time period. The author is a retired National Park Service ranger. Since his retirement, he has devoted himself full time to research and writing about the Civilian Conservation Corps. The book is 221 pages, and measures 8-1/2″ x 11″.
