Lots of high-minded drivel has been published about California and its AG (after gold) history. But great stories and Jackson tells them honestly and well. And all the characters who were captivated or ruined by the discovery of gold are here. 800 people in January, 1848, in the newly occupied town of San Francisco near the end of the war with Mexico. The month gold was discovered. At least 30,000 people there by the end of 1850 when California became a state.

Jackson captures the people and the mood of a mixed and mixed up society in California when gold fever transformed it and shortly the whole nation. And profiles the folks who came from across the country (before rails) or from around the world. The author dug deeply into first-hand accounts and journals and wrote engagingly about a short, wild period that defined California's promise that only started with gold.

Great read. Past the scramble for nuggets and flakes and dust, complex issues defined through the eyes of the participants. If you wish a glimpse of an amazing time and place, try Jackson.

I just picked this book up at the store where I work to read during lunch, but got so absorbed in it that I wound up taking it home and reading it all the way through. It's well researched and well written. As the other reviewer said, "it IS amazing what these people went through to get to El Dorado; California".

I had not previously placed the 1849 Gold Rush in proper historical perspective. As the author points out, along with the Civil War, the Gold Rush of 1848-1850 was the seminal event of the 19th century for Americans. It impacted upon so many different facets of what being an American was then: transportation, military, economic, "social", political, etc.

I would call this book a "sleeper" because it sort of sneaked into my consciousness and then really became a delight to read.
