Reviews

"Ian Neligh recounts the story of the Colorado gold rush, bringing it forward to contemporary times, melding the old and the new. He tells about the men who still moil for gold in the Colorado Rockies." (GOLD!) "Written in compelling journalistic style, each chapter is devoted to a different fascinating gold hunter, alternating between the Wild West of the 1800s and the colorful characters who make up today's Colorado prospecting community. . . Neligh excels in interviews with the people practicing this work today. . . getting into the minds and hearts of these Coloradans." (GOLD!) “I can’t imagine a better guide to the Old West and the contemporary Wild West than Ian Neligh. This book is a hoot.” Expand reviews
