Overview

One of the bestselling novelists of the American West brings us a gripping tale of gold, greed, and vengeance.

Amid the mountains of the West, lie incredible riches never uncovered. Three prospecting brothers, in search of a great fortune, are led on the counsel from a dying Indian straight to the base of Thunder Mountain—a gravelly summit absent of life and vegetation. Despite the mountain’s outwardly desolate appearance, the three Emerson brothers approach the five thousand foot silt deposit with wide, hungry eyes—convinced they may have struck the motherload.

Once their hunch is proven to be true, the brothers find themselves swimming in gold. Afraid other prospectors would soon discover the source of their newfound wealth and take a cut of the profit, the Emerson brothers—now wild with ambition and greed—plot to set up a mine to conceal their discovery and reap all the benefits.

However, their newfangled fortune only brings them more backstabbing, corruption, and treachery than they ever could’ve imagined. In this classic Western novel, robbery, arrest, revenge, and even murder ensue.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns—books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians—are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L’Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
