  • "At 7:59 a.m. on Dec. 14, 1961, a passenger train smashed into a school bus in the farm country of Weld County, instantly killing 20 children. It was the deadliest traffic accident in Colorado history, leaving behind 17 survivors and a devastated community. Forty-five years later, the stories of those who lived and those who mourned show how a single moment has the power to uncoil through decades, shaping people for the rest of their lives." - p. [1]
  • A reprint of the series published January 23 - March 2, 2007
  • "The Crossing series relies on interviews with more than 80 people; official records, including Colorado State patrol and Interstate Commerce Commission reports; criminal and civil court documents in Colorado and California; and news accounts in The Rocky Mountain News, The Greeley Tribune, The Sterling Journal-Advocate, The Haxtun-Fleming Herald, The Artesia (N.M.) Daily Press. Historical quotes came from those involved directly in the conversations." - p. 3
