Description

Read about one of the most exciting times in American history "” the California Gold Rush. The Scholastic History Readers series was created especially to bring history to life for beginning readers.

Beginning with the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, this book traces the phenomenon that came to be called the Gold Rush. Readers learn what the phrase "gold fever" means, and who the "forty-niners" were. Various ways of traveling to the gold fields are described, as are various ways of mining or panning for gold.

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.
