Lost Beneath the Feather


There is still gold in the fabulous Feather River country- a golden heritage of the dreams, the schemes, the joys, the heartbreaks, the arrivals and the departures of those inquisitive pioneers who probed the deep, mysterious canyons and climbed to the very tops of the majestic, primeval hills. Hidden in the history of the great watershed of the Feather are hundreds of tales of high adventure and the singular experiences of pioneer life in the great wilderness. In this book Bill Talbitzer recounts some of the stories of the legendary sites that were lost beneath the waters of Lake Oroville upon its creation in the 1960s. Stories of fishing for giant sturgeon, to the story of Ishi, the last Yahi Indian, to stories of dredging and gold mining. Profusely illustrated with historic photos. Saddlestitched softcover: 56 pages: 8.25 x 10.5”
