An Interesting History Book

Over a year ago I read the book, Age of Gold: The California Gold Rush and the American Dream by H. W. Brands (Double Day: New York, NY, 2004), and I found it to be very interesting. The book is on the history of the California Gold Rush of 1848. I did not know a whole about the gold rush, and I learned a lot about the history of that time period.

If you have ancestors who moved to California during the Gold Rush or if you have an interest in the history of this time period, I highly recommend reading this book.
