They came to the Comstock. It was just a godforsaken mountainside but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanaza. The dreaners,the restless, the builders, the vultures--they were lured by the glitering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita a radiantly beautiful actess driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the challenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future.
