How far would you go to strike it rich? My little mini-documentary explores a vast network of underground tunnels begun in the 1800’s by miners driven to pull precious silver from beneath the mountains of Arizona. What prompted them to risk their lives hundreds of feet below the surface of the earth? The history of post-Civil War America, the lead in to World War I, and an icon of American prosperity all meet in the Silver Prince.

It’s my dad’s mine…and he’s looking to sell. So, if you have the itch to get into the mining business, let me know… 😉

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.
