Men and women, brave and resourceful enough to make a better life for themselves—and their loved ones—in the brand-new state of late-nineteenth-century Colorado.
During the height of Colorado Silver mining, fortunes could be found and lost in the blink of an eye. And those who sought to better themselves came from all over the country, looking to strike it big.
Many settled in and around Little Creede, Colorado, eking out a meager living along with mines that might never yield their silver bounties before all hope of discovery was lost.
Some went home, empty-handed and broken. Others succeeded beyond their wildest dreams . . .
A Family. A Legacy.
