"[A] fascinating study in the microcosm of the birth, development, and decline of the western mining frontier. [Rohrbough] admirably places the changes within the context of half a century of continuous mining excitement that stretched from Sutter's Mill in California in 1848 to the Klondike in 1898."

"This is a history meticulously researched and excitingly told."
—Walter Nugent, author of Into the West: The Story of Its People
