Written in 1915 and 1916 for Inyo Register by Horace Marden
2010, paper, 194 pages, index, size 6" x 9"
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 Marden’s 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
