Gold Hunting in the Cascade Mountains of Washington (Paperback)
Mining historian Kerby Jackson introduces us to a classic mining work in this important re-issue of "Gold Hunting in the Cascade Mountains". First published in 1861, this rare publication offers rare insights into an early search for placer gold near Mount Saint Helens in what was then Washington Territory. This rare booklet was written by an anonymous author under the name Loo-Wit Lat-Kla, which is a Native American word for "fire mountain", referring to Mount St. Helens. Gold Hunting in the Cascade Mountains is a fascinating read on the early history of mining in Washington, as well as on the mountaineering of Mount St. Helens. Only one copy of the original text survives. In the 1950's a limited edition of 300 copies was produced by Yale University, few of which still survive today. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of an original limited edition which was limited to only 300 copies and is not set in a modern typeface. As such, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
