Chasing the Dream—The Search for Gold in the Upper Swan River Valley
Chasing the Dream, Part II, tells the story of the first prospectors who found gold in the upper Swan River valley and in Illinois and Mayo gulches, and the mining districts they organized. Included is the story of Parkville, the first county seat of Summit County and almost the first capital of Colorado Territory. Numerous “then and now” photographs taken by the author make this book truly unique.
