Traveling California's Gold Rush Country

In 1849, 90,000 miners arrived in California with dreams of striking it rich. Today, in towns such as Sonora, Sutter Creek, and Placerville near the Sierra Nevadas, modern gold-seekers and history buffs can retrace the footsteps of the '49ers. This comprehensive guidebook to the gold rush country shares a wealth of information mined from years of research and the author's extensive travels throughout the region. Featuring complete descriptions and accurate directions to historic sites, historic inns, and fine dining, it's a must-have guide for anyone planning to join the sesquicentennial (1990-2000) of California's gold rush.

"Monday 24th this day some kind of mettle was found in the tail race that looks like goald first discovered by James Martial the Boss of the Mill," wrote Henry Bigler in his diary on Jan. 24, 1848, from Sutter's Mill, located on the edge of the American River. By 1858, more than 600,000 women and children from as far away as China and Australia had become part of California's Gold Rush. Nearly 150 years later, nuggets of gold fever can still be found in California's Gold Rush country, sparkling across 600 miles--from Mariposa County in the Sierra Nevada to Humboldt County on the Pacific Ocean. Detailed maps, historical anecdotes, and gold-panning tips make this book an ideal travel partner, whether you have one day or one month to explore this area's feverish past. Part of the area's allure lies in the fact that the Mother Lode (a 100-mile-long vein of gold-bearing quartz believed to be buried somewhere in the Sierra Nevada) has never been found.
