In The Trail of Gold and Silver, historian Duane A. Smith details Colorado's mining saga - a story that stretches from the beginning of the gold and silver mining rush in the mid-nineteenth century into the twenty-first century. Gold and silver mining laid the foundation for Colorado's economy, and 1859 marked the beginning of a fever for these precious metals. Mining changed the state and its people forever, affecting settlement, territorial status, statehood, publicity, development, investment, economy, jobs both in and outside the industry, transportation, tourism, advances in mining and smelting technology, and urbanization. Moreover, the first generation of Colorado mining brought a fascinating collection of people and a new era to the region. Written in a lively manner by one of Colorado's preeminent historians, this book honors the 2009 sesquicentennial of Colorado's gold rush. Smith's narrative will appeal to anybody with an interest in the state's fascinating mining history over the past 150 years.

Newell D. Chamberlain was born in 1880 and spent his early years in San Francisco. In 1926 he established Camp Midpines, so named because it was "amidst the pines and midway between Merced and Yosemite." In the 1930s he compiled this chronicle of events during and after the Gold Rush -- drawing on newspapers of the time and interviews with early pioneers and their children. The result is this kaleidoscopic view of life in a dramatic era in the history of California. Illustrated with many historic photographs, some of which have not previously been published. Book jacket.
