The novel spans four generations of the McClean family. Includes the late 19th century silver boom, ownership of a small town newspaper, the depression, World War II.

NOTE: I have acquired many hardcover books from an estate that were signed/inscribed to a "Tony Christy". They are all from the late 1980's - early 1990's. It appears that he had a brother connected to the California scene, and acquired the signed books for him.
