Many another venturesome man had long ago tramped in and dragged himself out again- up and down the creeks and canyons, valleys and hillsides they had labored. Scores of them had come and gone, but Loraine had remained.He labored at the sluice box in the creek bed for years, and had made good while his claim was being worked on the level rock bed- but hand labor is slow, and as he worked back towards the bank, the rock dropped below the water level, and this handicapped him greatly. However, he had cleaned up a few thousand dollars. He lived sparingly in his old log hut, for his needs were few.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
