Discovery Men The Fairweather Party & Montana's El Dorado

22.50

The discovery of gold in the Alder Gulch of Montana in 1863, has been called "the most notable event in any age of mining history."  The event is made even more extraordinary by the remarkable chain of events that brought together the men who made the initial discovery and their arduous journey.

Few of the thousands who came to this El Dorado were prepared for how the fabulous riches would shape history - least of the six discovery men.  Tragically, most of them would learn that it could be more difficult to live with a fortune than to find one.

Local author Gary Forney has previously published a biography of Thomas Francis Meagher, a legendary figure in the history of Ireland and Montana.
