Jones, at that time Superintendent of the Crown Point Mine in Gold Hill, sent for me to come to Nevada.... I was used to a life of luxury, a mediocre student, lazy, selfish, opinionated, with an entire lack of appreciation of time. I was, in fact, useless." For the next 26 years Harry Gorham worked with his uncle Sam managing the Crown Point and othe mining and milling properties. From 1877 t o 1903 his privileged position gave him access to all levels of Comstock life above and below ground. He knew everyone, and accumulated a treasure trove of stories and observations. This book is a monument to his times, and to the life that flourished on the Comstock Lode in the later years of the 19th century.
