Incorporating more than 130 personal stories from the men and women who lived and worked in the region, The Golden Quest And Nevada's Silver Heritage is enhanced with more than 130 personal stories drawn from journals, diaries, and letters. These stories and anecdotes showcases the humor, anguish, and determination of the people who settled the country. From tragedy to triumph, from hijinks to heroics, The Golden Quest And Nevada's Silver Heritage provides modern readers with a "you are there" perspective on what life was really like so long ago with all of its joys and tragedies, its hardships and successes.
