Rush to Riches (hardcover)


Renowned California historian, J.S. Holliday, of whom documentarian Ken Burns once said, "no one writes better about California's irresistible past," not only offers a compelling narrative of the California Gold Rush, but also includes nearly 250 illustrations, 100 in full color, that richly illuminate the themes and details of the text, and showcase daguerreotypes, photographs, paintings, lithographs, sketches, and specially drawn maps. Published by the Oakland Museum as part of their gold rush sesquicentennial project, this book is a must for California Gold Rush enthusiasts. Weighs over 4 pounds. Long out of print, these books are sometimes hard to find, and we only have a few available. Profusely illustrated. Hardbound w/dustjacket: 355 pages: 9 x 11.75"
