Massacred for Gold by R. Gregory Nokes arrived in my mailbox last week, so makes it onto my official Mailbox Monday list. I am looking forward to this one, even if I have already read my "gold" book for the Colorful Reading Challenge. This short history book is "the first authoritative account of the long-forgotten 1887 massacre of as many as 34 Chinese gold miners in Oregon's Hells Canyon, the deepest canyon in North America." My list is deceptively short today, because I also got a couple dozen books last Friday when Rachelle from Second Glance Books had a "clear out the basement" sale. Wow! Mine was quite a haul, including six books from C.P. Snow's Strangers and Brothers series that I want to get a start on one of these days. But between my mother's 70th birthday, a two-year-old Bavarian staying in my house, and this dang job of mine, I do not have time to list them all. .
