Of particular note is Smith's progressive record of the ways the mines were developed, the failures encountered, the bonanzas discovered, and the production records of the mines. In addition to the invaluable mining information, The History of the Comstock Lode includes the personal histories of the colorful men of the Comstock - "Old Virginny," the ill-fated Grosh brothers, John W. Mackay, Mark Twain, Dan De Quille, and Charles Howard Shinn, to mention a few. The book also contains many rare historic photographs of the mining district. With the addition of new material by Joseph V. Tingley, which brings the history of mining operations on the Comstock to the present, The History of the Comstock Lode will once again he enjoyed by scholars and students of mining history as well as western history buffs.

It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures—they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the challenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future. From the Paperback edition.
