Go west seeking your fortune with those who came because of the land's rich natural resources. News stories reveal the hard lives of miners in the Rockies and the desperation of prospectors searching for riches in the gold rushes in California, Alaska, and on the Klondike River in the Yukon. Find out which was the wealthiest occupation--trapping for furs, logging in the forests of the northwest, or mining borax in Death Valley.
