Saturday, August 11, 1:30 p.m., Bill Farley, How to Make a Million in the Wild West
The Wild West era in American history is replete with stories of prospectors, merchants and outlaws in search of great wealth. A rare few achieved their dreams, while everyone else either met their demise, returned home, or settled for steady wages working for others. In this presentation, author Bill Farley will discuss a variety of ways Wild West millionaires built their wealth—and kept it—in a landscape where there were few laws and a skeleton of a justice system.
