Synopsis: In this tale of the bold, bad frontier days Louis Bromfield passes on to the reader his enjoyment in painting an absorbing picture of a highly-colored era. His scene is the cattle and mining town of Silver City, run by P.J. Meany, the orneriest man (so his wife says) between the Mississippi and the Pacific. The Meany’s ornate, plush-curtained hilltop house dominates the landscape just as P.J. himself lords it over the men and railroads, the mines and ranches of Silver City. Under his ptronage the El Dorado, a high-toned gambling house, and his own "Oprey House" are lively centers for the town’s rowdy social life.
