Summary
" This book is the dramatic history of the mineral frontier as it affected on section of the vast American West-the Lower Colorado Region. Venerable and colorful Yuma, Arizona, on the river, was, and still is, the nerve center of the harsh wilderness which straddles the Arizona-California border. The town was supply center to the mines and mountain settlements, a place for raising hell on pay day, and base for mineral exploration and prospecting. Some of its turbulent mining past is still reflected in its friendly attitude toward strangers, and its casual way of life." -- book jacket
