COMSTOCK BONANZA by Duncan- Ed. Emrich


Email this review


Authentic Americana and rich entertainment in this collection of stories about the ""ghost"" guardian of the Comstock Lode, Virginia City. Edited by the Chief of Folklore Division of the Library of Congress, this lively collection includes some forgotten American authors -- versatile traveller John Ross Browne, pre- Twain and Melville; newspaperman Fred Hart, author of Reveille and The Lying Club, newspapermen James Gully and Sam Davis; Dan de Quille (William Wright); -- and of course Twain, and Bret Harte among others. A refreshing escape from Hollywood to the real thing.
