My primary interest is in the Timber Venture, to demonstrate the lack of scholarly research by David Antonucci, who bases research only on Roughing It, and ignores other primary documentation. Secondarily, I am putting together the tale of Sam Clemens from arrival in Carson City in 1861 to the day he begins work at the Enterprise in 1862. I have recently completed annotation of the 275 pages of letters by the Grosh brothers, who let the world know there was both gold and silver in the Virginia Range, leading to discovery of the Comstock Lode, a book due out in 2012.
