Roy Glenister is one of the many men blindsided by a shady politician who uses his influence to steal valuable claims from small town prospectors. This sparks a movement that encourages the locals to fight for what's rightfully theirs. The Alaska territory is full of men hoping to make a fortune. Roy Glenister and his friend, Dextry, have spent years prospecting and learning the lay of the land. His luck drastically changes with the arrival of a new judge and his band of federal marshals. Instead of bringing law and order, they're driven by greed and self-interests. Glenister quickly discovers a politician's plan to repossess their land and keep all the spoils for himself. It's an insidious plot that makes the small mining town a site of contention. The Spoilers is a thrilling true-to-life underdog story. Rex Beach delivers a detailed account of a prospector's life full of uncertainty. Upon its initial release, this was one of the best-selling novels of 1906. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Spoilers is both modern and readable.
