Woodleaf Legacy
Story of a California Gold Rush Town

Rosemary Mossinger

This lively history, told in engaging style, describes life in a small northern Sierra town. The author begins with the native Maidu village at the site for thousands of years, then documents the fur traders who came before the 49er miners.

Then she details 150 years of history, from the early mines that birthed the town, through years of resorts, stagecoaches and stage robbers, social life, toll roads and lumbering. Includes a chapter on the famed gentleman stage robber Black Bart who was active in Woodleaf for 14 years.
