The 1848 discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in present-day Sacramento led to a massive surge westward. Hundreds of thousands of people traveled to California from around the world. This book covers the details of the gold rush, from what daily life was like for the miners to what methods they used to search for gold. It also explores the impact of the gold rush on California's journey toward statehood.
