The Gold Rush undoubtedly sped up California’s admission to the Union as the 31st state. Mining had always been difficult and dangerous labor, and striking it rich required good luck as much as skill and hard work. In late 1849, California applied to enter the Union with a constitution that barred the Southern system of racial slavery, provoking a crisis in Congress between proponents of slavery and anti-slavery politicians. Moreover, the average daily take for an independent miner working with his pick and shovel had by then sharply decreased from what it had been in 1848.

The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) was a gold rush that began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California

The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) was a gold rush that began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. The news of gold brought approximately 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.

My husband and I just arrived home from a two week trip in Gold Country, and Barbara Braasch's book was so helpful! We loved that she included all the good stuff about each town but didn't overwhelm the reader with too much info. She includes interesting historical details, such as the fact that Dutch Flat was one of the few gold country towns not decimated by fire so has many of its original buildings. The writing is clear and interesting, and the book is easy to grab and consult when needed. I referred to the index constantly. This book contributed to making our trip a great experience!
