Excerpt from Klondyke and Fortune: The Experiences of a Miner Who Has Acquired a Fortune in the Yukon Valley
Then came news of gold strikes in Carolina and Georgia, to be quickly followed by fabu lonely rich finds of silver in the Pike's Peak district of Colorado, and the wor... ld went mad once more. Whole cities created by the gold fever in '49 were as quickly depopulated in a race for the new silver mines, where a Denver cobbler, after having thrown down his last, at which he had toiled for twenty-five years, piled up three million dollars in two years.
Townships sprang up overnight, like mush. Rooms, on the wild, steep mountain slopes of Colorado, only to be abandoned when news came of rich gold finds in British Columbia.
