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. Distinguished 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 Glory Days in Goldfield, Nevada is an extensive photographic essay celebrating the centennial of the last gold rush on the western frontier.
