An amazing story that includes the Mexican Regime; the Gold rush days; and statehood. The Irish and Irish-Americans came from New York, Boston, Canada, Missouri, and the south. Many rode the California and Oregon Trail by land. Some sailed 14,000 miles around Cape Horn, others came via Panama. They had reached the end of the rainbow. The first Irishman is found in the 1700's under the Mexican regime. Soon came the bear flag revolution, the discovery of gold and U.S. statehood. Over 2000 entries are made altogether.

This is the amazing 'rest of the story' of the Irish in America. The Irish who continued to move west to the end of the rainbow. See who made it to the gold rush, and what they became. A must for any genealogy or research library.

The whole story is here: governors; rogues; 49rs; pioneers; Mormons and millionaires. The untold story of the Irish in the Donner Party; the two early Murphy Families; Lola Montez; Mountain Charley McKeirnan and Brannan the Irish Morman who began the first newspaper in San Francisco before the gold rush.
