From the rear cover of this 108 page book: "In 'Steamcars to the Comstock' the authors deal lovingly with two railroads and impart to each its individual character and worth. Nevada's golden-haired daughter, the Virginia & Truckee, gloried in the transport of Comstock wealth and all its accoutrements. The narrow gauge Carson & Colorado, plainer perhaps, but sturdy and constant in her role, lived on to serve the last dwindling bonanzas at Tonopath and Goldfield. This volume represents the best pictorial record of these careers, with comment and caption carefully aimed to augment their fabulous part in the story of our land. The authors gathered salon quality photographs from many private collections; most have not been published elsewhere, and because they are product of varied personalities, they eloquently present the limitless facets of the Nevada scene. Fine maps introducing each section orient the activities of each road, and locomotive and equipment rosters at the back of the book provide excellent reference for the model builder and rail historian. Aside from the Bonanza Kings and characters commonly associated with the golden era, there are fascinating tales of others not ordinarily placed in this historical setting giving this volume a particularly broad appeal. Those who cherish the wondrous tale of our West will want to own this fine addition to an American library. [This book] has all the vigor, the spendthrift abandon of the Comstock era."
