Noy explores the deeply human stories of the California Gold Rush generation, drawing out all the brutality, tragedy, humor, and prosperity as lived by those who experienced it. In less than ten years, more than 300,000 people made the journey to California, some from as far away as Chile and China. Like his award-winning Sierra Stories, Noy covers minorities and an early feminist, providing compelling reading.
