Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Golden Crucible: An Introduction to the History of American California, 1850-1905 The Golden Crucible is well named, because, first of all, in the minds of the people, California is regarded as the Golden State. It was not the actual discovery by Cabrillo that awakened wonder, but the discovery of gold by Mar shall. The heroic days were the days of the vast immigra tion following the uncovering of the precious metal. It is a sad commentary on the historic priorities and proprieties that the Legislature, in selecting two men to grace the Hall of Fame, in Washington, omitted to select anyone associated with the Golden Age. An essay necessarily is concise and compact and Blake Ross has put into his story only the essential things. He has amalgamated the grains of fact into a nugget of truth. His achievement may, well give promise of another work, fuller and more comprehensive, which will allot to each passing phase of California life its appropriate place, and do justice to the great men who laid the foundation of the State.
