Summary
Few are better prepared than Vardis Fisher to write of the gold rushes and mining camps of the West. He brings together all of the remarkable men and women, all of the fascinating ingredients, all of the violent contrasts which, by chance, go to make up one of the most enthralling chapters in American history. Fisher, a respected scholar and versatile creative writer, devoted the better part of three years to the preparation and writing of this book
