From the Publisher:
It was a narrow gauge spur line of the Desert & Central Railroad to be built between Garnet and Castle Mountain, primarily to permit rail transportation for the lead mines. But the proposed route lay over some of the roughest terrain in Nevada. Clint Buchanan was engaged as the new construction boss because the grade laying crew had virtually stopped working. That there would be opposition to his assuming the job became obvious while he was still traveling on his way to the construction site. The land was tough, but not as tough as the men who were determined that the road should not be built at all. Combined with this was the fact that the construction crew was running short of steel, the most vital of all ingredients to assure success of the venture.
