In 1899, Nikola Tesla, a brilliant man who was instrumental in developing the electrical empire that shapes our world of today, lived and conducted research in Colorado Springs. Teslacame to the Pikes Peak region to conduct different experiments, primarily to find a way to transmit electrical power without the use of wires. The high, dry climate was ideal for his work. The tale of this exceptional scientist and unusual man comes to life in Inez Hunt and Wanetta Draperís book Lightning In His Hand: The Life Story of Nikola Tesla. The story by Hunt and Draper will appeal not only to readers interested in the growth of electrical power in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, but for the study of an eccentric, visionary scientist who found Colorado Springs a perfect lab for his experiments.
