About this Item: 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Brand new hardcover book! ; MORMON GOLD is a must read for anyone interested in the remarkable contributions of Latter Day Saints to California's mid-nineteenth century economy and culture. In this new addition, scholar Dr. Lorin Hansen provides a masterful revision of Dr. J. Kenneth Davies' classic study of the California gold rush and the major role Mormons played in it. New insights and fresh research, along with prolific illustrations and excellent maps, introduces the reader to Mormons living and working in Sutter's Mill and Yerba Buena (San Francisco) in 1848. MORMON GOLD masterfully recounts the ensuing gold rush experience from perspective of some of Mormonism's earliest and most ardent adherents. The work also details the development of the Great Basin's first monetary system and Brigham Young's extraordinary stewardship of gold brought to Utah from California. - - "For anyone writing on, studying, or curious about the California gold rush and the major role Mormons played in it, this book is pure gold! Mormon Gold, long out of print, has been a terrific standard for years?my copy is well-worn, dog-eared, and marked up?and this newly revised and updated edition is even better. Widely researched in primary sources, smartly organized, crisply narrated, marked with intrigue, epic in scope, insightfully mapped, sprinkled with appropriate analyses, contexted well historically, and with participants well-identified and tracked, this is must-have original scholarship at its finest. Mormon Gold?s back-reference material alone is worth the price of the book: name lists, subject index, and descriptions of five dozen Mormon-connected gold field locations.Mormon Gold skillfully fulfills its stated purpose to fully examine the ?extended Mormon role in the gold fields.? Beyond helping discover the gold at Coloma that launched the gold rush, Mormons became key participants in the expanding network of gold fields, including ones named Mormon Island, Mormon Bar, Mormon Gulch, Mormon Hill, and Mormon Ravine. Mormon Gold demonstrates that Brigham Young actually promoted the mining of gold by authorizing hundreds of Mormons to go into the gold fields including two dozen called on ?gold mining missions? Readers will find Mormon Gold fascinating." - - William G. Hartley, Professor Emeritus, Brigham Young University, former president Mormon History Association, award-winning biographer.
