Coal, silver, gold. There is something about the allure of hidden treasure that puts a glint in people's eyes. By gathering such familiar stories as that of Nevada's infamous Comstock Lode with a succession of lesser-known scandals, Dan Plazak provides an entertaining and informative volume that delightfully investigates the history of mining frauds in the United States from the Civil War to World War I.
