  • ""They came to the Comstock Lode drawn by the promise instant wealth. It was the richest deposit of silver the world had known, and drifters and dreamers, builders and thieves, fought, worked, schemed, and died to extract it from the earth--or to profit from those who did. For Val Trevallion, a Cornish miner with trouble in his past, it was a chance to build a lasting future--and settle an old score. For Grita Redaway, a beautiful actress, it was a chance to find a long-lost love. And for all who filled the legendary mining camps and boomtowns, it was a glorious moment in time when lives could be instantly changed--or forever destroyed."--P. [4] of cover."
