Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Bayard Taylor was among the thousands of young men who spilled into California in the tumultuous year 1849. He arrived not with pick and shovel but with pen and paper, dispatched by Horace Greeley of the New York Times to report on the madness, exuberance, and upheaval of the California gold rush. With wit, intelligence, curiosity, and engaging humor, Taylor chronicled the birth of modern California. His account is widely regarded as a classic of western literature. Writing as he moved, [Taylor] captured the feel and panorama of a volatile time and wrote a book that can still hold us a century and a half later. — James D. Houston.

Book News Annotation:

Reprints a firsthand account of the California Gold Rush written by a young journalist from the New York Tribune who traveled throughout the region during the rush, and recorded the birth of modern California. Much of the account addresses the explosive growth of San Francisco from quiet village to booming city. Includes reproductions of period drawings of California before, during and after the invasion of the '49ers.
