What stripped crews from 300 ships in San Francisco Bay? What stampeded the world's hungry men into icy creeks and untamed women to the Barbary Coast's gin mills and bordellos? How could a ditch digger make $3,000 in a day? What made California into a state in the time it took to ready a hog for market? Gold! "Stolen, borrowed, squandered, doled - the price of many a crime untold." -- "Wiles and Brown bring together the notable, infamous and newsworthy of the California Gold Rush and the nation's Capitol prior to the dark days that were on our country's horizon. Extensive research and the rich material presented have produced a real page-turner. Their Reference Notes are quick and easy to use to view sources or read further." Review by Maria E. Brower, Doris Foley Library For Historical Research & Director, Nevada County (CA) Historical Society.

About the Author:

Gary and Delores [Brown] Wiles were raised in the ageless shadows of the Colorado Gold Fields' pines. Now they live within a cougar's call of California's Gold Rush Country. Two of their recent books on America's early West were considered for the Pulitzer Prize. While graveyarding as a cop in an urban slum, Gary got a college BA. He wore a Marshal's star until earning a Juris Doctorate, then tried civil cases nationwide until succumbing to writing. Delores has always enjoyed a passion for historical research, though she worked as a model, then a photographer and writer.
