The dramatic story of the Gold Rush years--and especially of the clerks, farmers, bandits, entrepreneurs, cons, dance hall girls, and "good women" who came to find their fortunes. Drawing on personal knowledge of the area, publications of the period, and unpublished personal diaries, the late Jackson compiled a vivid narrative that recreates the excitement of California's most dramatic decade.
