"Wheeler offers a carefully researched and well-written saga of the last great gold rush in Nevada in the early 1900s. To the boom camp of Goldfield flock thousands of gold seekers.... All of these and more are vividly depicted by a master storyteller whose heart is obviously in the west."
..".But it is Goldfield itself that is Wheeler's finest character. It is a dirty, noisy, bustling, conglomeration of gamblers, miners, whores, freighters, hucksters, con men, storekeepers, liars, and thieves caught up in a "get-rich-quick" hustle. It is a town of dreams come true and dreams lost. It is the archetypal western boom town where the strong flourish and the weak go broke, and Wheeler describes it with the quiet authority of a writer who knows his subject and the compassion of a man who understands dreams."
"Wheeler now joins the ranks of Larry McMurty, Glendon Swarthout, Tony Hillerman, and Dorothy Johnson."
