In the middle of the nineteenth century the people who came to or came through Nevada did not necessarily do so with guns blazing. Some came as farmers, including a group of African Americans who made themselves successful in the Carson Valley. Some came as farmers but became miners, as did the Grosh brothers who found rich veins of silver alongside the gold in the Virginia Range. Some became farmers in neighboring Utah and to some extent in Nevada itself, including Mormons driven across the desert in order to practice polygamy in peace. Zanjani (political science, U. of Nevada, Reno) covers ten years of who moved in, who moved out, who moved in again, the decimation of the Native Americans, the legal and illegal ways of making big money, and the advent of territory status in 1861.

I originally posted this on December 31, 2012: Now Mr. X suggests certain revisions and, as it appears he is far more versed than I in the land and historical lore of front range of the Sierra (which I prowled but forever left 35 years ago now), I gladly defer, as well as including a few edits of my own:

Having read this volume four and more years past, and now reminded that I did, I discover its images yet vivid. Most folk passed through this "no (white)man's land" nestled between Brigham Young's Deseret and California's Mother Lode, but not all. Some were too worn to then cross that last barrier of the Sierra. And there were some who were directed to settle there by the powers above or in the toe-hills of the Wasatch. Then some folk crossed over to the California side, but returned for a variety of reasons, to operate trading posts, to farm & ranch, raise families, to claim the land from both those native and others opposed to one's religion, morals or politics, and a few to prospect the placers leading up and through the mountains toward what would become known as the Washoe Diggings that would rapidly explode into the Comstock Lode and create the metropolis stretching from Gold Hill to Virginia City. This is Nevada's early history up to the verge of that great Silver Rush, composed in singing prose and sometimes in the sarcasm it so richly deserves.
