In 1859, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, John Gregory washed four dollars worth of gold from a pan of dirt and turned Denver into a ghost town. Thousands followed in his footsteps — prospectors, road builders, shopkeepers, farmers schoolteachers, railroad men, dreamers all, pouring up Gregory’s trace like water rushing through a dike. This is their book, what they saw and what they named, from Coal Creek to Clear Creek, from Black Hawk Mountain eastward to the prairies.
