A mine of her own : women prospectors in the American West, 1850-1950 by Sally Springmeyer Zanjani( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the California gold rush through the mid-twentieth century, a special breed of women played an integral and heretofore unrecognized part in some of the most stirring adventures of the pioneer experience - the saintly Nellie Cashman; the copper queen Ferminia Sarras, known for her grand sprees; the former rodeo champion turned prospector; the ex-actress who snowshoed her way to Nome; and many more. A Mine of Her Own tells the definitive story of America's women prospectors for the first time. Sally Zanjani depicts more than one hundred women prospectors in often grueling, financially unrewarding, and utterly lonely efforts to strike it rich from the desert Southwest to the frozen rocks of Alaska and the Yukon. She tells their stories with warmth and skill and, in bringing them to life, forever changes our mental picture of the women who helped shape the modern West
Sarah Winnemucca by Sally Springmeyer Zanjani( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1883 she produced her autobiography - the first written by a Native American woman. Using private contributions, she returned to Nevada and founded a Native school whose educational practices and standards were far ahead of its time. [This book is] composed not only of public challenges and accomplishments but also of private struggles, joys, and ambitions. Unforgettable glimpses of her personality and private life leap from these pages: her notorious sharp tongue and wit, her love of performance, her place in a legendary family of Paiute leaders, her long string of failed relationships, and, at the end, possible poisoning by a romantic rival."--Jacket

Goldfield : the last gold rush on the western frontier by Sally Springmeyer Zanjani( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shortly after the turn of the century discoveries by a Shoshone prospector in the barren central Nevada deserts ignited the last great goldrush on the Western mining frontier. Prospectors, miners, stock promoters, gamblers, camp followers, roughs, lawmen, and anarchists, among others, converged upon this unlikely plot of sand and joshua trees from every corner of the earth. The saga that ensued is first-rate. It tells the story of ordinary people - their everyday lives, hopes, loves, and dilemmas - as well as the fates of the newly crowned nabobs, who could wager a fortune on the turn of a roulette wheel. "Hell-roaring Goldfield" passed through the same stages of boom, industrialization, and decline as its mining-camp predecessors, but with some significant differences. Greed knew no bounds, waves of epidemic disease and violent death swept the city, mining stock speculation reached new heights, and the tycoon who rose to the top - the ruthless ex-gambler George Wingfield - dominated Nevada for years to come. In other ways as well, the last boomtown cast a long shadow over the future. Goldfield played a key role in the nineteenth-century mining boom that reversed twenty years of depression and decline in a severely depopulated state and assured the triumph of mining camp ideology over other value systems. Along with its careless bravado, that ideology meant unfettered individualism and the primacy of materialism over moral values. It meant a restless search for excitement in the saloons, forerunners of today's casinos and second only to the mines in economic importance. Above all, it meant getting rich and getting out, leaving others to pay the price

The glory days in Goldfield, Nevada by Sally Springmeyer Zanjani( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Goldfield, Nevada, was one of the West's last mining boomtowns, centered on a fabulously rich gold deposit discovered in 1902 and exhausted by 1920. Goldfield's heyday embraced both the final days of the western frontier and the beginning of the automobile age, and its brief but brilliant history combined elements of both." "Mining historian Sally Zanjani has a personal connection to Goldfield - her father was one of thousands who went there to seek his fortune. In this book, Zanjani tells the colorful history of the town, enhancing her story with the personal accounts of many of its residents. The result is an exceptionally readable narrative of an exceptional place." "Goldfield developed first as a rough mining camp after the discovery of gold, but quickly it included modern stamping mills, an array of saloons and brothels, a lively business district, and a population of widely diverse backgrounds and habits. The arrival of the railroad brought access to the culture and luxuries of the wider world, and gold created the fortunes to enjoy them. But there were families here as well, mothers and children, homes, schools, and churches. There were also single women seeking a livelihood (respectable or not), crooks of many persuasions, politicians with a range of agendas - some less than honorable - and working men of many backgrounds, all hoping to strike it rich. By 1919 the gold rush was over - the ore bodies were exhausted and most of the population left for greener pastures. A disastrous fire in 1923 destroyed much of what was left." "Today's Goldfield is a mere shadow of its halcyon self, but Zanjani's engaging recounting of its story brings this last western gold-rush town to life again as the town celebrates the centennial of its founding. Lavishly illustrated with more than 160 remarkable period photographs, many from private collections and never-before published, The Glory Days in Goldfield, Nevada, will delight readers and preserve the history of one of Nevada's most important and vibrant mining centers."--Jacket
