Description

Mountain City is the story of a rural mining town in Nevada, 84 miles away from anything. It provides the classic western tale of fame and fortune, good jobs and a promising future, exploitation of the land and people, and ultimate abandonment by those who promised the elusive pot of gold. Gregory Martin tells the story of these descendants of Basque (Bascos) shepherds and Cornish tin miners, Native Americans, and assorted others that both introduces the reader to a small slice of contemporary western life and the history of much of the West as a whole.show more
