In this fascinating chronicle of the California Gold Rush written in 1918, American writer, Steward Edward White, gives an historical view of those early days of the mid-19th century, and the many challenges of the formation of a new frontier: incoming population, law and order issues, greed and power, political differences, successes and failures. White shows how quickly San Francisco grew from a population of a few hundred into a center for commerce, wealth, and politics. He writes of the Spanish days of early California, the 1846 Mexican War, and follows the movement of the Mormon population on its trail westward, and the challenge to create a civilized, law-abiding society. In Linda Pendleton’s new Introduction, we learn who Stewart Edward White was and the legacy he left of his many fiction and nonfiction books following his death in 1946. An explorer, conservationist, naturalist, and big game hunter, his love for nature, conservation, and adventure were to become very much a part of his literary works over his long literary career. Several of his nonfiction works are classics in the exploration of the paranormal and communication from the spirit world. He wrote with passion, whether about the adventures beyond the veil or about adventures in nature and the earthly frontier.

"Mr. White had \'arrived.\' He had arrived in the full flush of a glorious, strong young manhood, and the story he had to tell was a tale of life as it is lived by honest, loving, lovable, hard-working, hard-drinking, and hard-riding men - the men who carry civilization, a gun, and a flask into the unknown lands. Strong as such men are, strong is this story of their lives. It is an open, frank, piece of work; a picture such as Zola might have made had he been born an American. That a book of so much vitality....If you have not read the story you should, and at once. Read it for its beautiful use of beautiful words, beautiful in their simplicity and their strength; for its skillful construction, for the characters, genuine men and women of the frontier; human beings whose souls are open to the light of the sun above the Hills; whose emotions are primitive, and being so, are worn upon their sleeves, not left behind in a satin box upon the dressing table." -The Michigan Alumnus "One of the best books of the kind we have lately come across." - Outlook "Stewart Edward White...has gained a wide reputation for his stirring and vivid tales of American life in the West." -The Rotarian

White\'s books were popular at a time when America was losing its vanishing wilderness. He was a keen observer of the beauties of nature and human nature, yet could render them in a plain-spoken style. Based on his own experience, whether writing camping journals or Westerns, he included pithy and fun details about cabin-building, canoeing, logging, gold-hunting, and guns and fishing and hunting. He also interviewed people who had been involved in the fur trade, the California gold rush and other pioneers which provided him with details that give his novels verisimilitude. He salted in humor and sympathy for colorful characters such as canny Indian guides and "greenhorn" campers who carried too much gear. White also illustrated some of his books with his own photographs, while some of his other books, were illustrated by artists, such as the American Western painter Fernand Lungren for "The Mountains" and "Camp and Trail". Theodore Roosevelt wrote that White was "the best man with both pistol and rifle who ever shot" at Roosevelt\'s rifle range at Sagamore Hill.
