The King of the Golden River or The Black Brothers: A Legend of Stiria by John Ruskin was originally written in for the twelve-year-old Effie (Euphemia) Gray, whom Ruskin later married. It was published in book form in , and became an early Victorian classic which sold out three editions. In the "Advertisement to the First Edition", which prefaces it, it is called a fairy tale, one.   The gold bugs dream of a gold standard and like so many religious myths, the fantasy won’t die. Here are some of the myths surrounding the shiny metal.

Midas, in Greek and Roman legend, a king of Phrygia, known for his foolishness and greed. The stories of Midas, part of the Dionysiac cycle of legends, were first elaborated in the burlesques of the Athenian satyr plays. The tales are familiar to modern readers through the late classical versions, such as those in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book XI. These ten original ghost stories dramatize the tumultuous history of years of Chinese immigration to North America - from the poor village men who first cam searching for gold in the late s to the new immigrants who arrived from Hong Kong in the wake of the Communist victory in China. As with the award-winning collection, Tales from Gold Mountain, Paul Yee's stories are fiction by told.

  There the gold assay is two and a half times richer than the sample from Victorio Peak and it has taken them a century to extract 1, tons of goldusing modern explosives and equipment, I might add. According to my Time-Life book on rare metals, a ton of ore in the South Dakota mine is equal to about 19 cubic feet. One English version is the abridged The Meadows of Gold: The Abbasids, translated and edited by Paul Lunde and Caroline Stone. An translation of volume I, by Aloys Sprenger, also exists and is available at Princeton's Firestone Library.. A first version of the book was allegedly completed in the year AD but the author spent most of his life adding to and editing the work as well.
