Description TechnicalSpecs
Written in 1915 and 1916 for Inyo Register by Horace Marden
  • From vigilante justice to flooded mine shafts to grueling feats of
  • accomplishment, Horace Marden tells it all in his fascinating series of articles about the
  • early days of gold and silver mining in the foothills and eastern slopes of the Sierra
  • Nevada Mountain Range of the late 1800s California and Nevada. He knew the stories intimately--he was there and participated.
  • Though he does not give himself much credit, Marden was an important
  • force in the development of the mines and the communities of that time. The fact
  • that, late in his life, he made the effort to chronicle these stories and publish them in the
  • Inyo Register has provided a rich resource for historians and others interested in
  • learning the details of life in that important period of history.
  • Peggy Knudsen Lee has gathered, together with Mardenís articles, maps,
  • illustrations and information from journalists and geologists of that time. Much
  • interest and additional detail is provided by her own commentary, written with obvious
  • fascination and affection for the times and the people. --- Jo Anne Jansen
