"W. Turrentine Jackson's study of Treasure Hill, first published in 1963, has endured as a classic case study of a typical mining district in the western United States. Much more than events at the Comstock Lode in Virginia City, the rush to White Pine, its brief season of glory and excitement followed by sudden decline, typifies the pattern of development in the vast majority of mining districts in the West." "Far more than a tale of sudden wealth and lawlessness - although both were abundantly present - Treasure Hill encompasses the impact of growing international capitalism and labor movements on the mining West, the bitter politics surrounding the creation of towns and counties, and the often tragic human costs of boom and bust."--BOOK JACKET
