My Gold Rush Adventure 1853-1857


From a previously unpublished and recently brought to light manuscript, comes this first person account of the California Gold Rush written by John Carruthers Bates, a clever and resourceful young Yankee who demonstrated the energy of the American nation at that time and who sailed to California during the excitement of the California Gold Rush, arriving here when just 15 years old. This account is especially compelling in how well it describes the activities and insights of a remarkably intelligent teenager. Relates the authors experiences in San Francisco, Nevada City, Forest City, and Michigan Flat. Hardcover with dust jacket: first edition: 124 pages: 6.25 x 9"
