As 1879 draws to a close, this Rocky Mountain boomtown has infected the world with silver fever. Joe Rose, a precious-metals assayer, was found trampled into the muck behind Inez Stannert's saloon. A lady educated on the East Coast, Inez has a past that doesn't bear close scrutiny, including her elopement with a gambling man who has recently disappeared.

Most townsfolk, including Inez's business partner, Abe Jackson, dismiss Joe's death as an accident. But Inez wonders: Why was this loving husband and father carrying a brass token good for "one free screw" at the parlor house of Denver madam Mattie Silks?

When Joe's widow Emma asks Inez to settle Joe's affairs, almost against her will, Inez uncovers skewed assays, bogus greenbacks, and blackmail.

Miners Mark on Red Mountain
Miners Mark on Red Mountain
With both gold and silver having been discovered in the area, man really left his mark on this view of Red Mountain. Back in the 1870s, mines were common in southwest Colorado with lots of activity. As one of the larger mines in the San Juan Mountains, the Idarado Mine contains almost 100 miles of underground tunnels. Miners would enter here at the Treasury Tunnel and ride underground trams to their work stations. In its time, the mine produced 4 million ounces of gold, 21 million ounces of silver, and 12 million tons of lead, zinc, and copper - making a significant contribution to the industrial revolution. This image shows Red Mountain at sunset from Red Mountain Pass (aka Million Dollar Highway) between Ouray and Silverton, Colorado.

Lost Ski Areas of the White Mountains
The White Mountains of New Hampshire are world renowned for the array of skiing opportunities offered to every skier, from beginner to gold medal Olympian. Today over a dozen resorts entice tourists and locals each year with their well-manicured trails, high-speed lifts and slope-side lodging. But scattered throughout this region, the ghosts of former ski areas can still be found. In the White Mountains alone, sixty ski areas have closed since the 1930s. Author Jeremy Davis has compiled rare photographs, maps and personal memories to ensure that these beloved ski outposts, cherished by generations of skiers, are given recognition for transforming the White Mountains into a premier ski destination.
