In 1849, gold fever struck the nation, and many people left their homes for the gold fields of California. Here's how the miners went West in boats and covered wagons, how they panned for gold, and what they did with the gold. Included are maps, funny stories about miners, and facts about men like Levi Strauss who became rich by "not" mining for gold. Not every miner made a fortune, but they all shared in a great adventure.
