Perch of the Devil

Perch of the Devil

(1914)
A novel by

 
Butte Montana-set novel of Gregory Compton, "a miner whose greatest passion is for his mine, a money maker for whom money is always second to his leaping love for the adventure of making it. Compton's struggle against the mining trust, the adventures of two women abroad, leads up to the final situation of the man and the two women".

The story is "western" in a modern sense of the word, for it mixes a favorite theme of early western fiction - mining and sudden riches - with a story of two wealthy socialites. Both women are married, but one loses her heart to the other one's husband. So it is a love story, too, played out in elegant gowns, well-furnished drawing rooms, and the fashionable watering holes of Europe.
