Travelling performers struggle to impress rowdy western towns in Anything Goes, and ambitions clash as Montana miners fight for control of The Richest Hill on Earth; two novels from six-time Spur Award winner Richard S. Wheeler. Anything Goes The cowboys, gold miners, outlaws, gunmen, prostitutes, and marshals who populate the Wild West never see much big-city entertainment. Those western towns are too wild and rowdy for entertainers to enter, let alone perform in them. All that is about to change. Though the towns are starved for entertainment, the Follies struggles to fill seats as it grinds from town to town. Just when the company is desperate for fresh talent, a mysterious young woman astonishes everyone with her exquisite voice.The Richest Hill on Earth The city of Butte looks like a cancerous mélange of smoky mine boilers and rudely constructed sheds when newspaperman John Fellowes Hall arrives in 1892. But Butte is the place to get rich. It is also a city full of stories, perfect for a journalist looking to make a name for himself. As an employee of mining titan William Andrews Clark, Hall will find himself deeply involved in the best story of them all: the fight among the Copper Kings. This is the story of their struggle as well as the story of the ordinary people-'the miners, their wives and children, the journalists, and even the psychics-'trying to make their fortunes on the richest hill on earth.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
