The Fable of Orson Grisby
Orson Grisby was a washed up old prospector in the waning days of the California Gold Rush. This is the story of his last ditch attempt to strike it rich, a tale of greed and miscalculation set in the forboding 40-Mile desert of central Nevada. There's a lot of historical detail. It's based on a campfire story I made up for my kids a few years ago.
