The way to stop that is — not to have any fires. Lack of cooperation between the mines, suspicious of each other and each other's motives — that and the effort at secrecy — caused most of the trouble. Take the Gould and Curry fire for example. Johnny Kennedy knew every foot of the Curry ground. He knew that if he could get through a bulkhead, it would be clear sailing. He and his men worked like mad, cleared the bulkhead, and, racing toward what they thought was safety, met death when they found another bulkhead on the north line.Read more

Gordon Frazier

Somewhere in the rocky high ground North east of Nevada's pyramid Lake there's a white Mustang mare that Gordon Fraser and I would like to bring out one day. She's one of three or four hundred wild horses still roaming that remote corner of the Paiute Indian Reservation, and she's as fast at has fiercely beautiful as the lightning. When Gordon took me out roping Indian-fashion, she was the big one that got away. I met Gordon a couple of years ago at Sutcliffe, the two saloon settlement on the west shore of the lake. He's a slender, dark skinned Paiute of medium height and athletic build, and more often than not he wears his Piratical features wrapped up in a wild grin.
