Strike It Rich: Prospecting for Gold and Silver, Colorado, 1

By: Lakes, Arthur
Price: $22.95

Western Reflections Publishing Company, Lake City, Colorado. In the 1800s, Arthur Lakes, known as the “Father of Colorado Geology,” saw the need for a book that laymen could use in their quest for riches. Prospecting for Gold and Silver (reprinted as Strike it Rich) is as valuable now as it was over 100 years ago and is a “must read” for today’s historian or amateur prospector. Paperback, 214 pages, reproduced historical drawings and black-and-white photographs.
