This book would be wonderful if I were writing a research paper. However, I just wanted to find out the 'true' stories of my favorite characters from the HBO show. I didn't finish it, as it went into impressive (but tedious, if that's not what you're looking for) detail of how to mine gold and claim land for prospecting. Wasn't a bad book at all, just not what I was looking for.
good historical info about Deadwood. i especially appreciated the information about early mining and how it worked.
