Double Shoe Publishing

 Award-winning books that highlight history are the focus here at the Double Shoe Publishing Company. We started with a couple of titles that detail two historic ranches in southwestern Colorado – the Smith Ranch and the Last Dollar Ranch. Encouraged by the response, we moved forward with A Heritage in Iron, which salutes the artisan blacksmiths who provided such magnificent work in rebuilding the two ranches previously mention. We followed up with A Ranching Legacy, a beautiful coffee table book that covers both ranches along with the people and animals that call them home. 

Below, Vince Kontny  can be seen  on one of his favorite horses, Doc, in a painting  depicting the life of a rancher in the winter.  In his Last Dollar Legacy, he gave life  to a forgotten homestead and rekindled his ranching traditions.
