The Huntington Library holds the most important collection of Gold Rush materials in the United States. This book, a companion piece to the Huntington exhibit of the same title, brings the Gold Rush era to life through vivid anecdotes taken from actual journal entries, newspaper articles, and letters of the period. Lavishly illustrated and well-researched, Land of Golden Dreams is accessible to both historian and lay reader alike.
