At the Time Appointed

By A. Maynard Barbour
Published in 1903 (Grosset & Dunlap)

A western novel among the mines. I originally wrote this post in October and revised it today. There was no real need, I admit, to give so many half-digested details of the plot but at any rate it's historical source material.
