Earlier this month I purchased The Golden Fury at a bookstore called The Bookstore. I chose it because it had a lovely map on the flyleaf. It was also published in 1949 which is sort of too new for most books I like but the map won me over. In between books that I was reading for other BookCrossing members (either as rings or relays) I took the time read and enjoy The Golden Fury.

The book had moments that felt very real and the way Colorado was described as being at the start of the 20th century

Very memorable characters who had lived at the time when mining towns were springing to life.
