Legacy of Silver and Saddles The book follows the journey of G.S. Garcia and J.M. Capriola, two legendary saddle makers in northeastern Nevada who made their living from the working cowboys and ranchers in the Great Basin. Entering into the present are the Bear and Wright families who have chosen to continue the tradition and heritage of leather craftsmanship. Today, customers entering the J.M. Capriola Co. are met with the same smell of leather that greeted G.S. Garcia’s patrons over 100 years ago. The book is 130 pages with 300 photos, many never seen before.
Co-written by Dee Dee Garcia White (granddaughter of G.S. Garcia), Paula Bear Wright (owner of J.M. Capriola Co.), Linda Harris and Janet Pearce Petersen.
