Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 . . . As captivating as any good novel . . . A gold mine of interesting historical facts and human-interest stories.”
True West
 
“A fast-moving, satisfying production of popular history.” —Booklist
 
“True to Rosen’s crime-writing roots, with chapters devoted to the lawlessness that pervaded the mining camps and lurid tales of notorious gold rush criminals.”
Publishers Weekly
