--Book Description-- Using letters, journals, newspapers, reminiscences, and other original papers from various libraries and museums, author Remi Nadeau gives a view of the Gold Rush and the mining towns the way the miners saw them. He includes many rare photos from private collections and maps and directions for finding even the remotest ghost towns.
A delightful, humorous and historical look at the towns and mining camps of California to be enjoyed by both the casual reader and the serious history buff. -- Placerville Mountain Democrat
A long-needed guide, provided by the historian perhaps most qualified for such a work. . . . . a beautifully designed, pictorially generous volume which reflects Nadeau's ability to combine scholarship with writing style. -- Los Angeles Times
