Frozen in Time: The Enduring Legacy of the 1961 U.S. Figure Skating Team
Nikki Nichols


    Frozen in Time presents a deeply researched account of one of the most iconic stories in the history of American sport. Most sports fans have heard the tragic story of the plane crash that killed all the members of the 1961 U.S. World Figure Skating Team, and sixteen of their friends, family and coaches, en route to the World Championships in Prague. This account takes readers inside the lives of the skaters, revealing the friendships and romances, the rivalries, sacrifices, and triumphs of the world-renowned competitors.

    The dramatic focus lingers on two families of powerful women: the Owens and the Westerfelds. Maribel Owen, without question the most famous woman in figure skating at the time, relentlessly drives her two young daughters, pairs champion Mara and the spectacular Laurence, who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated on the day she died; Myra Westerfeld, meanwhile, loses her marriage while guiding her daughters Sherri and Steffi to the pinnacle of the sport.

    Author Nikki Nichols also explores the aftermath of the crash. In an unprecedented period in American athletics, the U.S. skating program had lost all of its stars and struggled to rebuild, pushing forward very young competitors, such as Peggy Fleming. But perhaps the most far-reaching effect was the creation of The United States Figure Skating Association’s Memorial Fund, which would provide training grants and scholarships to skaters who would not otherwise be able to afford the sport—among them Scott Hamilton and other of top skaters.

Ghosthunting Colorado

Ghosthunting Colorado
Kailyn Lamb


In the 1800s, Colorado quickly became the heart and soul of the gold rush that eventually brought the territory into statehood. Thousands flocked to cities like Leadville in the hopes of finding their fortunes. Many of Colorado's most famous ghosts, such as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” have their roots in Colorado's colorful mining history. Alfred Packer, the state's sentenced cannibal, also came to Colorado for gold, but there are more than just the spirits of miners here.

The eyes of paranormal enthusiasts have long been on the Centennial State due to the fame that Stephen King's The Shining brought to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. The stories of Colorado's mountainous hotel seem to have taken on a life of their own, making the building supposedly one of the most haunted in the country. The Stanley, however, is not the only haunted hotel in Colorado. Multiple inns and hotels in Denver alone have histories as sites of brothels, suicides, and other deaths that make their victims decide to stay in their beloved rooms forever. The oldest hotel in Denver, The Oxford Hotel has ghosts aplenty and a “Murder Room” to boot. A bed and breakfast in Capitol Hill called The Patterson Inn used to be the mansion of Colorado's first state senator. The 14,000-square-foot building is made of red sandstone native to the Garden of the Gods area. The mansion is also the source of several urban myths, such as the tale of “Willy,” a satanic undertaker who lived in the carriage house and is said to have kidnapped and killed small boys.

Ghosthunting Colorado also looks outside of Denver, at the Rocky Mountains of Colorado are considered to be one of the best destinations in the country for hiking and skiing. The mountains appeal to spirits, as well, including the ghost of a woman who was supposedly murdered by her husband and who is now said to hitchhike on the roads near Pike's Peak. The world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison is not without its ghosts. Concertgoers and employees have seen the apparition of a miner in restricted areas of the venue, while the Hatchet Lady of Red Rocks terrorizes lovers in the surrounding park.

Author Kailyn Lamb looks at locations throughout the state and dives headfirst into the history behind the ghosts and what has made them stay.
