The Led-Horse Claim : A Romance of a Mining Camp (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from The Led-Horse Claim: A Romance of a Mining Camp It was, perhaps, this immense, though nu disciplined, force of sanguine youth which saved the city. The dangerous elements of the camp the mud, the weeds, and the drift wood which would have choked a more sluggish current - were floated and swept onward by its strong tide. The new board sidewalks resounded to the clean step of many an indomitable, bright-faced boy, cadet of some good Eastern family, and neophyte in the business of earning a living, with a joyous belief in his own abilities and a clean record to imperil in proving them. The older men, who had come with a slightly shaken faith in themselves, looked half compassion ately, half enviously, at these knights of the virgin Shield.
