When Jeremiah Clark enters the Cripple Creek gold camp with a grubstake of $128, he finds there are already three railroads and 20,000 eager miners competing for the riches. It’s the Colorado gold rush! But he also finds a local miner’s union importing dangerous men, willing to do almost anything. They are drifters, malefactors, and miscreants - the ilk of a territorial prison. Only a thousand state militiamen can control the rough element, bent on bringing down wealthy mine owners. This thrilling novel brings Cripple Creek’s labor wars to life in the events of one ordinary man who rises from two-dollar-a-week plow hand to Gold Coin Club millionaire practically overnight. But can his fledgling operation survive the conflict? If Only For a Season crackles with western action and drama. Characters like Sam Whitman - the aging Wild West prospector, Charles Moyer - the driven union boss, and Sherman Bell - the militia general, promise to delight all readers.

    "Your Chance to Live the Colorado Gold Rush" Although I have been to Colorado, I had never been to Cripple Creek, not until I read Mr. White's "If Only for a Season". I walked the streets, I visited the saloons, I saw fortunes being made, and I saw the ruthlessness of the day. And while enjoying a great read, I learned quite a bit of history about one of my favorite states to visit. Thanks.

    "Compelling" The story is rich with vivid images of Cripple Creek, Colorado a century ago. I felt like I was living it. Mr White has done a fine job telling the story of mining and the labor wars that occurred during the 1900's. His characters come alive! I feel I personally know Old Sam, the Clark family and even Black Jack the mule. I was so caught up in the story that I had trouble putting the book down. Mr White has made Colorado history a must read. Thanks. I am eagerly waiting for your next book.

    "A Great Story" This story is an egrossing tale about how the west really worked. The place and the time are described in careful detail and brought to life through Ray White's skills. From a literal cliffhanger to a fire, it portrays real human courage. I was forunate enough to read an early draft, and I was engrossed by that. Ray White has only improved on what was already a great book.
