Gold and Silver in the West

Gold and Silver in the West


Here, for the first time, is the entire story of gold and silver mining in the West, skillfully relating in words and pictures both the major and minor discoveries and subsequent developments in every part of America. Author and former editor of "The American West" magazine, T.H. Watkins' intensive research (including more than 10,000 miles of travel into some of the most important regions in the mining West) has uncovered many new facts and fresh interpretations, and scores of exciting, enlightening, and rarely seen pictures. Yet the singular accomplishment of this important book really lies in the author's ability to look into the past to see clearly and describe eloquently the relationships and meaning of events widely separated by time and geography. This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated book of history and adventure is a treasure for everyone interested in the past and present of the American West. Profusely illustrated in color and black and white images. Hardbound w/dustjacket: 287 pages: 9 x 11" Dustjacket has minor tears and tape repair, inside pages like new.
