Drawing upon a wide variety of documentary sources--letters and diaries, as well as contemporary newspaper and magazine reports--the author shows us gold fever running like fire through the cities of the East. Immediate, rich in detail, here is history at its most irresistible, heroic, poignant, and terrible by turns. Gold Dust takes us straight to the living core of an American epic.
