Emil Billeb was a photographer and miner during the heyday of Great Basin (Nevada and Eastern Sierra) mining camps. He tells the stories with charm and his great camera of the people, technology, and environment.

This is a must have book for anyone interested in the early mining camp of Bodie...it is not the beginning of the camp but Emil, a great historian and picture taker lays it all out....he was the son in law of James S. Cain and even tho' from Germany, the man earned his stripes from his boot tops up....his rememberances at the time of writing the book had nary a cloudy memory....

Format: Paperback
A well-written and highly credible first-hand account of a fascinating era of technological and social change on one of America's last frontiers, by a man with the analytical mind of an engineer leavened by lively human interest. I find this book as enjoyable as it is useful for historical research.
