The Rush Of '72
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
When two Kentucky prospectors, John Slack and Philip Arnold arrived penniless and near starving in San Francisco to deposit raw 'American' diamonds in the Bank of California, it caused quite a stir. Rumors flew across the city. This was going to be bigger than Kimberley and everyone wanted a piece of the action. But Slack and Arnold would be hard men to woo. This is a true story of the American West. What begins as a trickle in the Colorado mountains would grow into the great diamond rush of 1872 and ruin the lives of almost everyone it touched. ---
