In 1867, news of the vast silver veins in the new Idaho Territory exploded and lured men the world over with promises of wealth and power, bringing those who were starry-eyed, silver-drunk, and desperate for more. But when miles of underground chambers were breached between two of the largest working mines, the results became deadly.
Smart but naive, Miss Adelaide Johnston is in over her head in Silver City.
Hundreds of feet below the peak of War Eagle Mountain, battle lines have been drawn and fingers from both sides are itching to pull triggers down in the depths of hell, where their war cries were kept hidden from the ears of Silver City. That is, until the town's pretty choolteacher/news reporter gets wind of more than silver being mined; war is being waged and unless Miss Adelaide can temper the flames with her news-breaking column, Silver City's sheriff may be facing a raging bloodbath.
Will the handsome Sheriff Forrester be able to stop the madness before all hell broke loose or will they be digging more than rocks out of the Owyhee Mountains?
Based on the documented events of "The Owyhee War," Silver pulls back the pages of the Old West and reveals a hidden chapter of the mining boom, recounting a period when the frontier lay open for the taking and the mountains offered riches beyond compare - if you were willing to sell your soul.
