Excerpt from La Fanciulla Del West (the Girl of the Golden West)

The action takes place in that period of California history which fol lows immediately upon the discovery made by the miner Marshall of the first nugget of gold, at Coloma, in January, 1848. An unbridled greed, an upheaval of all social order, a restless anarchy followed upon the news of this discovery. The United States, which in the same year, 1848, had annexed California, were engaged in internal wars; and, as yet undisturbed by the abnormal state of things, they were practically outside everything that occurred in the period of this work; the presence of their sheriff indicates a mere show of supremacy and political control. An early history of California, quoted by Bel asco, says of this period: In those strange days, people coming from God knows where joined forces in that far Western land, and, ac cording to the rude custom of the camp, their very names were soon lost and unrecorded. And here they struggled, laughed, gambled, cursed, killed, loved, and worked out their strange destinies in a manner incredible to us of to - day. Of one thing only we are sure they lived!' And here we have the atmosphere in which is evolved the drama of the three leading characters. The camp of the gold seekers in the valley, and the Sierra Mountains; the inhabitants of the spot coming down from the mountains, joining the goldseekers who come from every part of America, making common cause with them, sharing the same passions; round this mixed and lawless folk a con glomeration of thieving and murderous gangs has sprung up as a na tural outcome of this same lust of gold, and infests the highways, robo bing the foreign goldseekers as well as those from the mountains; from the strenuous conflict between these two parties arises the application of a primitive justice of cruelty and rapacity.
