About the Book

1929. The purpose of this volume is to depict life in California during the eventful days of 'Forty-nine. While wide use has been made of historical sources, this volume is not offered as a monographic study but rather as a popular presentation or interpretation of that period, the author having especially in mind the interests of the lay reader rather than the critical historical scholar. Contents: California Gold in Fact and Fable; John A. Sutter, Lord of New Helvetia; Gold! Gold! Gold!; The Secret Broadcast; Gold Fields of 1848; Nature's Treasure-Trove; The Miner at Work; Miners' Ways; Vox Populi in the Diggings; Judge Lynch and the Miners' Jury; Paper Towns and Easy Money; San Francisco, the Mushroom City; Life at High Pitch; and The Golden State.
