GOLD! The Story of the 1848 Gold Rush and How it Shaped a Nation

goldThis definitely must be one of the most readable books ever written about the California gold rush and its direct effect on the growth of this nation and the American culture.

With an informal narrative style as captivating as any good novel, the tales of early gold and silver discoveries carry us through decades of riches found in California, Nevada, Arizona, South Dakota and Alaska. The book itself is a gold mine of interesting historical facts and human-interest stories concerning long-forgotten personalities involved in that era of rich bonanzas. Fred Rosen’s Gold is a great exploration of an exciting phase in American history.
