9780738546971: Grass Valley (CA) (Images of America)

Grass Valley was named for its spring-fed meadows, but its history springs from deep below the soil. An immeasurable wealth of gold lay in ancient river courses, embedded in quartz, or scattered capriciously in surface gravel. Vibrantly entrepreneurial since its inception, Grass Valley echoed with the roar of stamp mills crushing gold-bearing quartz 24 hours a day, every day, for decades. Its mines produced $350 million, and millions more are thought to be buried beneath the modern city. Grass Valley's wealth drew flamboyant stars like Lola Montez and gold-camp-urchin-turned-star Lotta Crabtree. It was here that philosopher Josiah Royce was born and Cherokee writer Yellow Bird (John Rollin Ridge) lived his final days. Grass Valley was often the subject of Alonzo Delano's tales of the gold rush, and more recently, it was the setting and inspiration for Wallace Stegner's best seller Angle of Repose.

About the Author:

Dr. Claudine Chalmers, a native of France like many of Grass Valley's first settlers, became captivated with the Gold Country. It was the subject of her dissertation and countless articles, inspiring an exhibit for the California Historical Society and Sacramento's Crocker Art Museum. With the precious images of several public and private collections, she brings Grass Valley's glittering tale to life.
