GOLD PROSPECTOR by William Marshall Rush


Email this review


The time is 1884 for this story of the hard long search for gold against the elements, against Indians, nefarious gamblers, shifty leeches, and physical hardships, as Seth Munroe, a sober, serious hero, sets out from muddy Missouri to track down gold. The book does a thorough job of research on several levels,-Indian problems, mining, the coming through of the railroads, etc. There's a mine of interesting local information here for supplementary reading on American expansion. But there's a good chase story too, with a solid ending not draped in gold nuggets!
