9780615922447: History of the Big Bonanza: An Authentic Account of the Discovery, History, and Working of the World Renowned Comstock Silver Lode of Virginia City, Nevada

Peruse Press is proud to present this entirely new edition of the "History of the Big Bonanza" by Dan De Quille (William Wright), with an introduction by Mark Twain, and many historic photos by Carleton E. Watkins, Charles L. Weed, Timothy H. O’Sullivan, James H. Crockwell, Lawrence & Houseworth, and others. Added to this edition is a new prologue of select droll barbs between Dan De Quille and Mark Twain extracted from 1864 editions of the Territorial Enterprise newspaper, where the two worked together as reporters in the rambunctious boomtown of Virginia City, Nevada, located directly on top of the enormous Comstock Lode silver vein. Also included in this edition is a new compilation of 114 historic photographs, illustrations and maps selected to complement the text, and give readers a firsthand look at the historic people, mines and region delineated in this classic tome of the "Sagebrush School" of western literature. Photographers, illustrators, and cartographers in this edition include Mathew Brady, Grafton Tyler Brown, Elmer Chickering, James H. Crockwell, W. H. Davenport, T. L. Dawes, Mark Diederichsen, Andrew A. Forbes, Charles F. Hoffmann, Robert Kerrigan, Augustus Koch, Lawrence & Houseworth, Walter Neale, John S. Noe, Timothy H. O’Sullivan, Roswell Morse Shurtleff, Louis Thors, Carleton E. Watkins, Charles L. Weed, and True Williams. This is also the only edition with a complete index.

About the Author:

Dan De Quille arrived on the Comstock in 1859, the same year the first silver discoveries were made, and remained for almost forty years watching its history unfold. As a senior newspaper reporter, De Quille took a young Samuel Clemen's under his wing at the Territorial Enterprise (where the name Mark Twain first appeared in print), and the two fed off each other's acerbic humor and established a tremendous following of readers. De Quille's reporting of Comstock activities and humorous stories were often repeated in other newspapers throughout the old west, and some of his fabricated hoax tales obtained international fame. Being the most prominent newspaper reporter at the time in Virginia City, De Quille had his finger on the pulse of the region, and had direct access to the mines and people, making him eminently qualified as the authoritative author for a history book about the Comstock silver mining boom.
