Description
In "The New Eldorado," Colorado comes alive as a place where fortunes were waiting ot be won and lost in the bloody gold and silver rushes that shaped the legends and the style of the great American West. Famous and infamous, mighty and small, all stampeded toward the big bonanza -- gun-for-hire Bat Masterson; journalist Horace Greely; publisher William N. Byers; "Unsinkable" Molly Brown; Silver Croesus H. A. W. Tabor and his beautiful inamorata Baby Doe; multimillionaire Meyer Guggenheim; and fabled four-flusher "Soapy" Smith. A lusty frontier re-creation of one of the most exciting chapters in American history, "The New Eldorado" races through lawless, thrilling turn-of-the-century Colorado and proves that truth, well told, is infinitely more bizarre than any fiction ever written. -- back cover.
