Editorial Reviews

As seen on Television.


Nothing makes history come alive better than visiting the places where historic events occurred. This exciting new series, hosted by the Emmy Award winning Bill Boggs, will take you to these great locations, giving you a personal sense of the people and events that have shaped the world. You will not only discover the excitement of exploring history, but will also learn the routes, lodging and site-seeing information to become a historic traveler.

Gold Rush and Gun Fights takes viewers back to that turbulent time in the American west when gold and silver discoveries created boomtowns overnight and set the stage for both lawmakers and lawbreakers. Gold Rush will visit the restored structures and museums of Sacramento, California, the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, the best preserved mining town in the Mother Lode country. The Gunfighters will follow in the footsteps of many of the most notorious characters of American history. From the O.K. Corral in Tombstone to a Jeep tour from Tucson to Wilcox, Arizona you will experience the truly wild, wild west. An additional side trip will be made to the Lincoln State Monument, site of the three-day shoot-out of the Lincoln Country War and the location that helped build the reputation of Billy The Kid. Gold Rush and Gun Fights will bring alive the amazing history of the American West.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

In Gold Rush and Gun Fights we tour the places in which some of the historic events of the Old West took place. The first half of the video takes us to the restored structures and museums of Sacramento and the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in California. We also learn about the techniques used for mining gold as well as the three routes taken to the Gold Rush country. The last half of the video tours the towns and counties of the gun fighters which are located in Arizona and New Mexico. The Earp brothers and Billy the Kid are among the featured gun fighters. I use this video as a teaching tool during my unit on the Westward movement and have found it to be quite effective. Highly recommended.
