Beginning with the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill, mining towns sprang up overnight, with businesses that addressed the miners’ every need. When the Gold Rush faded, the history of California had been changed forever. This book traces the phenomenon tht came to be called the Gold Rush. Readers learn what the phrase "gold fever" means, and who the "forty-niners" were. Various ways of travelling to the gold fields are described, as are various ways of mining or panning for gold.
