The New Eldorado
The Story of Colorado's Gold and Silver RusheseBook - 2016
For forty years they flooded Colorado-gold diggers, silver miners, outlaws, gamblers, and pioneers-looking for another Golden Fleece. Colorado comes alive in this classic overview of the gold and silver rushes, where fortunes were won and lost. Phyllis Flanders Dorset has re-created a lusty frontier scenario of one of the most exciting chapters in American history. Crammed with colorful characters and unforgettable incidents, The New Eldorado races through lawless, thrilling, turn-of-the-century Colorado with the fascination of a novel and fidelity of scholarly history.
