Santrauka: In Silver the author takes his reader back to the colourful era of the Golden West in a tale of betrayal and revenge. Masterton's main character, Henry T. Roberts is similar to Collis Edmonds in Railroad. Women had always loved Roberts, but only one of them was determined enough to follow him across the American continent. As Roberts chases his fortune he becomes aware of the temptations and guilt that threaten to destroy him. He is faced with a tough decision: being disloyal to a dedicated woman, or becoming many times richer than he deserves. A well written book which beautifully captures the magic of a different era.
