Of tales by and about Forty-niners we have a whole library; but until now no well-rounded study of the California Gold Rush, the methods of the early miners, the financial returns, life in the diggings, the rise of law and government, and the steady conquest of the mines by large-scale capitalism, has been written. Mr. Caughey covers all these subjects in an eminently readable fashion.
