by Rosemarie MossingerThe Story of a California Gold Rush Town

A captivating saga of California's bygone days, this book tells the story of Woodleaf, a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Add to this story the age-old tale of the greed for gold, and a remarkable saga unfolds. From the pages of diaries, letters, handwritten deeds and photographs, we glimpse moments in the lives of those who walked these hills and called them home.”

Illustrated with more than 200 photographs, wood engravings, lithographs, drawings, and maps; comprehensive notes; bibliography; index.

“Exhaustively researched...a most engaging
and readable style.”
