Rush to Gold : the French and the California Gold Rush, 1848-1854 /
The California Gold Rush began in 1848 and incited many 'wagons west'. However, only half of the 300,000 gold seekers travelled by land. The other half travelled by sea. It's the story of this second group that Rohrbough examines here, focusing on the 30,000 French participants.
