Summary
Sutter's Mill, California, has been a place where Americans have gone to pursue their dreams since the moment gold was discovered there. The Gold Rush of 1849 affected California's settlement and culture and hastened the move toward statehood. Readers look at life in mining camps, the cities that grew from them, changes in the economy, and the effect the Gold Rush had on California's Native Americans.
