ABOUT THE BOOK: This is the foremost history & guide to the charming old California mining towns, from the Gold Rush country to the desert silver camps. Using a wealth of first-hand accounts by participants, this highly acclaimed history recreates the Gold Rush to the Mother Lode of 1848 through the 1850s, the silver stampedes that followed to Eastern California, & the final desert gold boom at the turn of the century. The rise & fall of each featured town is relived in the colorful tales & fascinating men & women, good & bad, of those brawling, turbulent days. Nadeau also describes the modern-day appearance, the points of interest & the location of each camp, from ghostly ruins to the thriving towns that still survive.
