Swanee’s Silverton. 2nd Edition. “The real story begins with the arrival of my grandparents here in the late 1800s. It continues, through WWII, the Depression, the ‘big movie’ days with Jimmy Stewart and Marilyn Monroe, and my years in business and politics here, including when I was the mayor.” Gerald’s personal and historical photos, along with all the wonderful stories he tells (naming names!) make this book a must read for anyone who knows Colorado’s San Juan Mountain towns—or wants to know more.
