Scene #1  Prospector's accident causes gold rush in Nevada  (SV02541)

In the early 1900's, Nevada was booming with gold and silver fever and the towns of Tonopah and Goldfield were born - both made by major gold strikes.    Prospector Frank 'Shorty' Harris recalls that, "The country that is far away always looks best to a prospector."    So in the summer of 1904, Shorty and friend Eddie set out to seek their fortune in the same area. But after two months of toiling with nothing to show for it, Shorty goes looking for their lost burrows and starts picking away at some interesting rocks:   "Hellfire, Eddie - we've struck the jackpot!"    They stake out two claims that make them rich and soon word spreads and the rush is on!
