"Silver—a whole mountain of it! Following the trail of some runaway horses, Jim Norton had stumbled on a fortune. Or so he and 17-year-old Earl thought at first. But they soon learned the truth of Uncle Henry’s words: ‘Silver is work. . . a long way and a million blisters.’ And they soon learned to work sensibly, for overwork could break a miner’s strength, and carelessness could cause a mine cave-in. The time was 1870, and the place Montana. The two greenhorns were fresh from the comforts of Indiana and had been on their first prospecting trip. Little had they thought they’d find a rich strike, or that their camping spot in unmapped territory would become, overnight, the scene of a stampede of jostling prospectors and, later, the site of roads and stores and cabins—a growing mining town."
