The Trail of GoldLarge Print - 2004
Everyone knows about the California Gold Rush of 1949, but few know about the Gold Rush of Nevada which followed. It was no less cut-throat, and it had plenty of its own powerful stories to tell. It's against this backdrop The Trail of Gold is set. It's the story of Ware, a young prospector, and Elaine, a young Indian girl. It's also a story woven amid desert stampedes, and the vicious struggle for the precious gold that could make a grizzled prospector and overnight millionaire -- and flat broke the next day. Dane Coolidge's background as a naturalist is a trademark of his Western fiction. He was intimately familiar with the vast, isolated regions of the American West and its deserts, and brings his fiction to vivid life.
