Recreates the vigorous times of Bonanza at the principal mines and mills along with the adventuresome personalities who activated them. The varied and spectacular geography of Southern Nevada and Eastern California-from Death Valley and the Mojave Desert to the hard rock tunnels of Goldfield and the isolated communities of Rhyolite and Pioche-makes for a dramatic railroad story.
