"Ambrose Bierce once said that an experienced writer 'must be a sinner and in turn a saint, a hero, a wretch.' In a feverish lifetime, turbulent with rampant enmities and equally rampant friendships, he was looked upon as all of those, and he still is, long after vanishing in Mexico. Following the Bierce trail, often vague and sometimes lost, from Warsaw to San Francisco, I Have entertained by the enthusiasm of pro-Bierceans, by the grumpy distaste of antis, and by the blank ignorance of many who never heard of the man. The sharp facets of a character both positive and negative, but never neutral, are a challenge to a biographer. If not particularly important as a writer, he is stimulating as a person. Hence this most recent of many attempts to interpret a controversial figure."--Page vii

Meadow Lake : gold town by Paul Fatout( Book )

6 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The inhabitants of Meadow Lake, California, dreamed as big as all the gold seekers of the far West, certain that their town, their mine was the 'big bonanza'--a place of legendary wealth that most prospectors believed really existed somewhere. The dream took shape in 1865 when the Meadow Lake region of eastern California became the scene of one of the most feverish stampedes in the history of prospecting. Reports of gold-filled ledges five miles long brought miners, lumbermen, and speculators rushing into the area, and within a year a city of several thousand people sprang up. Their frenzied optimism was undiminished by disquieting news that the gold could not be removed from the surrounding granite. The following summer brought increasing crowds, but a profitable method of separating the gold from the rock was never discovered. Disenchanted miners began to leave, and within a few years only a lone hermit, the original inhabitant of Meadow Lake, remained in the dismal wreckage of the once-thriving town. Paul Fatout brings to life the colorful characters who figured in the history of Meadow Lake, telling the story at a sprightly pace and in fascinating detail"--Provided by publisher
