This brochure advertises the Kansas Pacific Railway's "Golden Belt Route" by a map of their lines from Kansas City and Leavenworth to Kit Carson, La Junta, Denver, Trinidad, Greeley in Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming. The map shows all of the counties of Kansas and its principal cities as of 1878. In Colorado it shows principal cities throughout the state and the major peaks and passes of the Rocky Mountains. The reverse side of the brochure advertises the Kansas Pacific Railway routes and facilities in Colorado and Kansas. It has an engraving of the Kansas Pacific Railway's Union Depot in Kansas City, Missouri along with time tables for the various routes of the Kansas Pacific and some of the local connecting railroads. For Colorado, the mineral and agricultural resources, medicinal properties of its mineral waters are promoted. For Kansas the agricultural land available for settling is promoted, as well as many tourist opportunities for both states.
