Excerpt from Our New West

The Pacific Railroad unlocks the mysteries of Our New West. It opens a new world of wealth, and a new world of natural beauty, to the working and the wonder of the old. The eastern half of America offers no suggestion of its west ern half. The two sides of the Continent are sharp in con trasta of climate, of soil, of mountains, of resources, of produc tions, of everything. Nature, weary of repetitions, has, in the New West, created originally, freshly, uniquely, majes tically. In her gifts, in her withholdings, she has been equally supreme, equally complete. Nowhere are broader and higher mountains; nowhere richer valleys; nowhere climates more propitious; nowhere broods an atmosphere so pure and exhilarating; nowhere more bountiful deposits of gold and silver, quicksilver and copper, lead and iron; no where denser forests, larger trees; nowhere so wide plains; nowhere such majestic rivers; yet nowhere so barren deserts, so arid steppes; nowhere else that nature has planted its growths so thickly and so variously, and feeds so many appe titee so richly; yet nowhere that she withholds so completely, and pains the heart and parches the tongue of man so deeply by her poverty.
