Goldfield, Nevada in 1905 is no place to settle and raise a family. It's in the middle of an arid desert -- and in the middle of a gold rush. O.T. Skinner and his family plan to stay only long enough to restock their supplies before continuing their journey to California. God, however, has a bigger purpose in mind. He's about to use this simple family and their simple faith to make a lasting impact on the entire town in these first two books in Stephen Bly's new series, The Skinners of Goldfield.
