    In the rip-roaring, true saga of the Comstock Lode, Dennis Drabelle skillfully brings to life silver-mining in the late-nineteenth-century American West. The immense wealth extracted from the Lode spurred the growth of San Francisco, and Virginia City, the hell-raising town that sprang up above the mines, was the inspiration for the TV series Bonanza.

    It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures - they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. There was Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past, and Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need.

    In San Francisco, the new Bank of California would branch itself in Virginia City, Nevada, a mining town situated on a mountain side over the Comstock Lode of silver. As the branch's moment bigger grows under the direction of William Sharon, so a monopolistic sovereignty of mills and mines is ventured. This drama sets forth the actions of monopolist temerity and what success or miss the principals had. F. L. Light is the author of the Gouldium, a series of 24 dramas (all framed to his peculiar form of Athenian tragic poetry), on the life and times of Jay Gould.
