God's Pocket: A Western Story
Jarbridge, Nevada, hosted the last big gold rush in the continental United States. Milo Goodman was there to witness it. He was seventeen at the time. Milo is of the impression that it should be easy to find the fabulously rich Lost Sheepherder's Mine. He isn't discouraged that he has never prospected for any kind of mineral and might not know what gold looks like if he does find it. The first person he meets in Jarbridge is Dave Bourne. Somehow Milo ends up owning Bourne's saloon business so that Bourne can leave town before he is lynched. God's Pocket is a magnificent story, filled with many unforgettable characters, based on a town that actually once existed, told as only Ken Hodgson can tell it, with style, humor, romance, and drama.Ken Hodgson was born in the shadow of Pike's Peak in 1945. He and his wife live in San Angelo, Texas.
